OnePlanet was established in 2015 to partner with indigenous communities to build a more sustainable, empowered, and just future through community-based projects, outreach, and technical assistance. They are currently working to help empower and support the Maijuna indigenous group of the Peruvian Amazon in the effective protection and management of the Maijuna Kichwa Regional Conservation Area. This protected area is made up of 391,000 hectares of biologically diverse and culturally important Maijuna ancestral territory. It is currently threatened by a government road project and development corridor focused on oil palm plantations that would ecologically devastate this currently roadless area and put the cultural survival of the Maijuna at great risk.

NPL is supporting One Planet's Guardians of the Forest appeal from August-October 2021. Find out more on our conservation page.
