Leila Salazar-López
Amazon Watch Program Director

I wanted to write about this way ahead of time so you can "save the date." In my opinion, we should all be watching the Amazon. My visit there over seven years ago anchored my decision to launch Mrs. Green's world. I learned that each of the 7 billion people on the planet count on the Amazon rain forest to regulate our planet's climate generating a full fifth of the world's oxygen and fresh water. Amazon Watch was founded in 1996 to protect the rain forest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. Medicine, oxygen, water, food, life - this is what this biological treasure gives to all of us. Amazon Watch works every day to preserve and protect this great life force so critical to our survival. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
