The ACEER Foundation supports its education and research programs in the Amazon with classrooms, field labs, canopy access systems, demonstration gardens, interpreted trails, and nature interpretation centers for researchers, students and others.
We do this by investing in new and existing infrastructure owned and operated by our partner organizations in Peru. Below are some of the facilities funded in whole or in part by ACEER in support of our mission, as well as a map of the indigenous communities that support our unique experiential learning programs.Los Amigos Biological Station
The ACEER's evolution is attributed to the learning experiences and efforts of passionate individuals who strive to educate others on the importance of the Peruvian Rainforest. It is through these ambitious and dedicated volunteers that the ACEER has been able to connect with millions of people through educational workshops, community building programs in the Peruvian Amazon, and cooperation with other organizations that work towards a common goal of learning in the global community. The foundation has shifted and transformed over the years in order to meet the growing needs of our mission to promote conservation of the Peruvian Amazon.
The foundation helps to educate thousands of children in South America, Europe, and the U.S. when the JASON Foundation broadcasts 55 episodes at the ACEER site in the Peruvian Amazon covering topics such as water conservation and the indigenous population.
The ACEER Foundation becomes the only non-profit organization to receive direct support from the National Geographic Society.
A benefit concert is performed by Olivia Newton-John Easterling in Washington D.C. to help the ACEER fund projects in the Amazon. Olivia and her husband John Easterling of the Amazon Herb Company join the ACEER as members of its Board of Directors.
