Amazon Watch envisions a world that honors and values cultural and biological diversity and the critical contribution of tropical rainforests to our planet's life support system. Indigenous self-determination is a critical component of any successful conservation strategy for the Amazon, and indigenous knowledge, cultures and traditional practices contribute greatly to sustainable and equitable stewardship of Mother Earth.

Amazon Watch strives for a world in which governments, corporations and civil society respect the collective rights of indigenous peoples to free, prior and informed consent over any activity affecting their territories and resources. They commit, in the spirit of partnership and mutual respect, to support our indigenous allies in their efforts to protect life, land, and culture in accordance with their aspirations and needs, as well as the needs of future generations.
