Run the 2018 Milano Marathon for the Amazon.
In Oxapampa, at the gates of the Peruvian Amazon forest, the lush centuries-old vegetation is under attack: the practice of quema – deforestation by fire – and the introduction of non-native plants, changes the natural habitat in terms of flora and fauna. Thousands of square kilometres of this “Biosphere Reserve” are deforested every day, as recognised by UNESCO. Instead of the rainforest, now agricultural activities and intensive pastureland are taking its place.
Fratelli dell’Uomo, together with the Yanesha people, who have been fighting for thousands of years to defend their land, plants a native tree every day to restore the original forest and enhance agro-ecological crops.
Thanks to your commitment, since 2014 we have recovered 20 hectares with the combined planting of forest species and typical fruit trees and supported 60 “guardians”, trained in the protection of natural resources and in the techniques of “agro-ecology”.
With your help we can do even more: run for Oxapampa to the Milano Marathon!
