preserve biodiversity and a healthy climate

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.

Example for a wilderness protection certificate

What motivated me to join WI, and what continues to convince me, is the directness of the work. Instead of expensive awareness campaigns, WI actually protects unique wilderness areas. And not only the how, but also the what is sound. Areas for protection are selected based on acute threat, ecological importance, or strategic location. All of this can be tracked by anyone using geo-coordinates. It can't get more transparent than that!

Environmental Ambassador

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.
