Amazon in Focus 2011
A Year in the Struggle to Defend the Amazon
Fall 2011 | Amazon Watch
This October marks Amazon Watch's 15th Anniversary. In that time, we have evolved into a savvy team who can operate in remote jungle communities, the halls of power, Hollywood, and in the streets to mount pressure on companies, mobilize concern through the media and engage decision makers on alternative energy and sustainable development pathways.
Defending the Amazon is a defining battle of our time and has the potential to shift the balance towards justice, ecological balance and the recognition of our interdependence on nature and living systems. In this year's Amazon in Focus, we share stories from this struggle.
