Every holiday season, the Perfect Supplements' family likes to
celebrate our thankfulness with a large annual donation to a variety of
charitable organizations that share
Our Values of protecting people and planet.
This year we are doing our part to protect the
Logging and Agricultural Expansions Threaten The Rainforest
The Amazon Rainforest has an incredibly rich ecosystem – there are around
40,000 plant species, 1,300 bird species, 3,000 types of fish, 430 mammals and over 2.5 million different insects.
The size and ecosystem of the rainforest is so great that more than
20% of the world's oxygen is produced in the Amazon.
While many people see the Amazon as unoccupied rainforest, there are about 400-500 indigenous tribes that call the Amazon home.
Loreto and Ucayali Regions are the two largest Amazon regions in Peru
and are traditionally occupied and protected by indigenous groups.
Unfortunately, hundreds of indigenous communities have no recognized
ownership rights and their
lands are under tremendous pressure from logging, agro-industries and colonists.
Without the titles to their territories, native communities have no
legal instrument to defend these lands from activities like logging and
Provide Land Titles for the Indigenous Communities
and local partner Center for the Development of an Indigenous Amazon
(CEDIA) seek $4,656,096 to title 220 communities covering more than six
million acres in order to legally protect indigenous lands. It is
crucial to close the unprotected gaps between indigenous territories to
prevent colonists and industries from negatively affecting the integrity
of the ecosystems. In addition to granting communities the rights to
their land, this will provide protection for Endangered species such as
the White-bellied Spider Monkey, Giant Otter and Black-faced Black
