Playful monkeys, secretive jaguars and jungle trees covered in lianas – the Peruvian Amazon is the most biodiverse place on Earth! Together with Wilderness International and Milky Chance, you can protect this rainforest forever.

About the Milky Chance Forest

When the sun rises over the rainforest along the Tambopata River, the forest begins to breathe. Warm mist rises above the treetops and the sunlight breaks into warm colors of red.

Only few rays of sunlight break through the dense canopy of the jungle's giants. They stand on tall buttress roots and are covered in liana and epiphytes.

Already protected by Milky Chance for you

“I support Wilderness International’s work because of its direct impact. Instead of investing in expensive awareness campaigns, WI actually protects unique wilderness areas. And not only how they do it makes sense, but also what they do.

They select areas for protection because they are acutely threatened, of high ecological value or located in a strategically important place. Everyone can track this thanks to the exact geo-coordinates. I cannot think of anything more transparent! ”

Milky Chance in Canada

In November 2021, during their North America tour, the band joined us in the Vancouver area to see whales and learn about our forest conservation work. And about what the two of them have in common!

About Wilderness International

Wilderness International purchases primary rainforest areas with land title and legally protects them for all future. Donations refinance the purchases and at the same time finance long-term protection as well as environmental education and research. Donors receive a personalized certificate with the exact geo-coordinates and aerial photograph of the forest area they are protecting. Thus, the use and impact of the donation is tangible and directly traceable. We are currently working in the temperate rainforest of Western Canada and the Amazon rainforest of Peru.
