The Asháninka once lived in the heart of Peru’s Amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep.

This valley is one of the world’s most at-risk areas, with illegal logging and coca destroying the forest.
By linking villages together, we’re shielding millions of acres of neighbouring forest from loggers.
