The Status of Conservation of the Amazon Basin
by Vasco von Roomsmalen and Mark Plotkin For much of the past 15 years, the Amazon has been the subject of extraordinary attention by both the media and by environmental organizations. Many millions of dollars have been spent to "save" the Amazon. Yet this magnificent ecosystem the "greatest expression of life on Earth" according to Dr. Tom Lovejoy, an authority on Amazonia is still threatened. Why? For the most part, the original threats to the forest remain in place: poverty, population growth, greed, short-term planning. Nonetheless, some successes have been achieved. National park systems are found in every tropical South American country, except Guyana. The environment is now discussed at most high-level meetings. And the growth (and projected growth) of ecotourism has been extremely encouraging. But what are we destroying? Do we really know? Mammals exemplify how much we already know and how much we still have to learn. Scientists recently began working in an area the size of France where no investigator had done any serious research since Alfred Wallace 's studies in the 1880s. Because of its high biodiversity spread over many 'islands' isolated by large river systems, research in this area led Wallace to formulate his ideas of the theory of evolution. Yet we STILL know little about many of the animals that live there! Over eight new species of monkey, a new species of peccary and perhaps even a new species of jaguar have been discovered in the past three ears despite the fact that Amazonian mammals are much better known than any other group of organisms!

The Amazon River and its tributaries supply 20% of the world’s fresh water. The world’s highest diversity of fish, butterflies and birds is found in the Amazon Basin. The Brazilian government wants to set another record in the Amazon.

Amazonian Indians Seek to Revoke U.S. Patent On Sacred Plant, Granted to U.S. Citizen
Leaders representing tribes from nine Amazon Basin countries and two traditional Shamans filed a request on March 30 with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to revoke a patent issued to a U.S. citizen for an Amazonian rainforest plant. The plant is used for the sacred Ayahuasca ceremony by thousands of indigenous people in the Amazon. The patent was issued in 1986 under a law designed to protect fruit growers who create a "new and distinct" variety. But according to experts, the patented version of the plantBanisterioposis caapigrows naturally throughout the Amazon and was never altered by the patent holder. Ayahuasca is an important cultural and religious symbol for many tribes of the Amazon. Shamans use it as the basis for religious ceremonies. Indigenous leaders compare patenting Ayahuasca to "patenting the Christian cross." The request was brought by the Coordinating Body of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon Basin (COICA)which coordinates over 400 indigenous groups belonging to nine national federations of Amazon countriesalong with the Coalition for Amazonian Peoples and Their Environment, and the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL).

Indigenous Peoples Action Corner Who are indigenous people? The word indigenous means life that is native to an area.  Indigenous people are those who have lived on their land for hundreds to thousands of years, the "first peoples," whose cultures are among the oldest in the world.  In the United States indigenous are often called First Nations, or Native Americans.  Some indigenous people live in much the same way they did before contact with Europeans, while others are much more influenced by modern society.  Either way, their culture is distinct. There are indigenous people all over the world, with cultures that are very different depending on where they are from.  However, some aspects of indigenous cultures are the same in different parts of the world, such as the close relationship between the people, their natural environment and the spiritual world.  As well, indigenous people all over the world are at risk due to the continual exploitation of their lands. to learn more

Assembly of First Nations Historically the First Nations have a unique and special relationship with the Crown and the people of Canada, as manifested in treaties and other historical documents. In essence, the special relationship is one of (negotiated agreement with a view toward) peaceful coexistence based on equitable sharing of lands and resources, and ultimately on respect, recognition, and enforcement of our respective right to govern ourselves. The AFN exists to promote the "restoration and enhancement" of this relationship and to ensure that it is mutually beneficial to the First Nations people. The Assembly of First Nations is a national aboriginal lobby organization.

In Depth The Amazon in Danger Could the vast Amazon rain forest disappear from the face of the Earth during our lifetimes? Some scientists now maintain that the forest itselfnot to mention the many thousands of plant, animal, bird, and insect species that call it homeis in imminent danger of extinction. A new mathematical model by an American researcher, presented at a 2001 Geology Society conference in Scotland, suggests that the destruction of Amazonian rain forests could be irreversible in as few as 10 years, and forecasts the whole-scale destruction of Brazil's rain forest in 40 or 50 years. The primary threats to Peru's tropical forests are deforestation caused by agricultural expansion, cattle ranching, logging, oil extraction and spills, mining, illegal coca farming, and colonization initiatives. Deforestation has shrunk territories belonging to indigenous peoples and wiped out more than 90% of the population. In the southern Amazon's Madre de Dios department, 3 decades of gold prospecting have pushed isolated Mashco-Piros, Amahuaca, Yaminahuas, and Yora tribes to the edge of extinction. Along with the threats to communities comes cultural extinction: Knowledge of plants and natural medicines, traditional ways of life, and even languages are lost. In Peru's Amazon jungle, new languages are being discovered even as others become extinct. Once-isolated communities in the jungle spoke up to 150 languages; today, only 57 survive and 25 of them are in danger of extinction, according to the Summer Institute of Linguistics.
