Amazonica

Explanation

Amazonica: The name Amazonica unites activities in the Amazon rainforest. Amazonica has taken on the task of preserving the Amazonian forest system for mankind, together with the indigenous Indio peoples. An underpinning of these activities is the Rainforest Academy in Ecuador. The research and training institute, open to scientists and students from all over the world, was brought into being to increase understanding of the tropical rainforest. Another focus is the deepening of knowledge concerning community development that has resulted from model projects in the forest. The effort is taking place under the auspices of UNESCO. Amazonica is supported, among others, by the government of Ecuador and the European Climate Alliance. Founder and Chairman of the Amazonica Foundation is the publisher Mascha Kauka, who has been involved with the Indios of the Amazon region for 25 years as a development aid worker, environmental expert and advisor.
