Iyarina Forest is an Amazonian land trust whose mission is to  maximize the wellbeing of the forest as well as the flourishing of the families who live in relation to it by producing abundant food as well as employment that combines traditional knowledge and evidence based forestry.   

Success will be measured by

1.  The increased productivity of the forest.

2.  The preservation or increase of its biodiversity

3.  The increased wellbeing (sumak kawsana) of the families who live and work in relation to it.


Iyarina is different from other land trusts in that the forest is actively managed by an international team of academic and traditional indigenous experts.  It serves as a research site in search of practical solutions to the problems threatening the Amazonian Sustainability.
