We are dedicated to preserving this habitat and improving life for those who live along the Amazon and its tributaries. Two of our most important conservation projects are providing clean water and educational support for communities near Iquitos and the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve. IE has been heavily involved in projects downriver, including building three water treatment plants; funding the Adopt-A-School program which serves 120 rural school; and funding the Amazon Medical Clinic started by past guest Dr. Linnea Smith.
