Be a Part of Our Mission

Our Main Objective is the Protection of the Amazon Rainforest

Our primary goal is the protection of the native forests of the Amazon in Peru. We want to keep the natural forests in their natural state, with the flora and fauna that have developed over so many years of their existence. The native forests, which we protect, have not yet had the intervention of man. Many places offer wonderful discoveries of new species of pourable and non-pourable animals. The richness of species and classes of medicinal plants, flowers, herbs, fruit trees, timber trees are still waiting to be cataloged and classified.

Our mission to protect the nature of the forest areas that we assume lies in avoiding the growing and often brutal deforestation. Only in this way can we ensure that these natural machines, which are trees and the variety of species of fauna, continue to produce the work of generating oxygen for humanity and the animal kingdom. it is a positive contribution that avoids sudden and drastic changes in the world climate. Only in this way can we retain the increasing, constant and gradual speed of our planet’s warming. Until today it is known that our planet has increased the temperature by 1.5 ° C and this has caused global catastrophes such as forest fires, torrential rains, droughts, immunizations, ice sliding from the north and south poles. Every day it is seen that the sea water rises and the cities that are on its shores disappear.

The conservation of the forests that we protect also brings about actively participating in the life of the beings that live within the forests as well as the beings that live in their rivers, lagoons and streams. Within them there are also communities not yet completely civilized that require orientation and knowledge of integration in the civilized world.

Climate Change – Is It Real?

When it comes to climate change, you have to distinguish between two things. First, there is natural climate change, over which humans have no influence. It is said that the last ice age ended about 10,000 years ago and that since then the average temperatures on earth have risen steadily.

Erratic boulders, which are huge round cut pieces of stone, show that glaciers transported them over hundreds of kilometers from the north to the south. Terminal moraines show how far the ice age armor had advanced. Geology thus leaves no doubt about these processes. The history of the earth shows constantly changing warm and ice ages. This rhythm changes every 300,000 to 600,000 years and therefore a long warm period should lie ahead of us.

This climate change cannot be influenced by us. But there is a second influence on the climate, which can only be attributed to man. For about 100 years, since the industrialization of the world and the resulting use of fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas, the average temperature of the earth has been rising faster than it would without human influence.

This is clear: After all, there are more and more cars driving around the world, there are more and more people in the world who want to be warm in winter and burn oil and coal to do so, there is an ever-increasing demand for electricity for households and for industry, for the generation of which a great deal of coal and natural gas is still being burned. 

There are now eight billion people on earth, which represents an enormous consumption mass. And they all want to live, drive a car, use a smartphone, eat, sleep and live, and industry is striving to fulfill all the wishes of these people.

These are the main causes of man-made climate change:

This second major factor influencing global climate must be added to the first. To natural global warming must be added the man-made rise in temperature. However, because we are intelligent and because we want to preserve our world for as long as possible, we are well advised to influence this second factor for climate change, the way humans contribute to global warming, as much as possible. We should be wise with the world’s resources, and we should address each of these causes to our advantage.

Planetlungs Amazonas (planetlungs.org) wants to start at one place and is committed to stopping the deforestation of the rainforest. There is a difference between taking another 300,000 years for temperatures to rise and having them rise immediately.

LOSS OF AMAZON FORESTS AFFECTS THE GULF STREAM AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROBLEM OF CLIMATE CHANGE IN EUROPE

PLANETLUNGS ORG (Germany), and the Peruvian organizations: ASSOCIATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND CONSERVATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES PERU – “ACRENAP”, the INSTITUTE OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH OF TROPICAL PLANTS “IICPT”, and the consortium of the BIOSPHERE RESERBA AVIRERI VRAEM “RBAV“, join forces to carry out actions to mitigate the impacts of global warming and climate change in Germany and Europe.
Climate is the description in terms of average values and variability of the temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind, etc., of a locality or region, over a relatively long period of time, such as 30 years, according to the World Meteorological Organization. Likewise, climate is the result of a complex interaction between the five components of the climate system: the atmosphere, the biosphere, the hydrosphere, the cryosphere and the earth’s surface; which maintain their own dynamics that generate variations in different time scales, events such as El Niño/La Niña, which have durations of some years or events such as glacial eras that occur in periods of thousands and millions of years only eventually interrupted by natural causes, such as volcanic eruptions and variations in solar emissions, or by human activity.

What We Achieved

Planetlungs will work in cooperation with three scientific institutions: ACRENAP, RBAV, INST. TROPISCHE PFLANZEN, these non-profit companies have headquarters in Peru. We will be the representatives in the European community and others to intensify the mutual work between South America and Europe, especially in Germany.

Likewise, sufficient material has been obtained for the publication of a scientifically based book called 

Book of the Atlas of Rhopalocera of Peru” (1st edition)”, which will be published between the months of June-July. This study is the result of research carried out over the last 20 years by the team of national and international researchers from the NGO ACRENAP in the Peruvian Amazon.

The book aims to identify species of diurnal butterflies from 6 families: Hesperidae, Lycaenidae, Riodinidae, Papilionidae, Pieridae and Nymphalidae (from 10 subfamilies: Apaturinae, Limenitidinae, Charaxinae, Cyrestinae, Brassolinae, Danainae, Heliconinae, Biblidinae, Nymphalinae and Satyrinae) . On the contrary, it also includes photos of the stages of eggs, larvae, pupae and imagoes (females, males and wings) of all the species identified as diurnal pollinators of plants and crops in the Amazon rainforest.

This book presents 569 species of diurnal butterflies from the Peruvian Amazon jungle (100 to 2,500 masl) and their 297 species of host plants (larval stage).

Join Us in an Rainforest Welfare Tour​

To develop our purpose and achieve the goals, it is not the job of one person but of all of us who must become aware of what we are experiencing. every day we verify that indeed our planet is in a constant process of warming, we cannot close our eyes and live as blind people and ignore, as in many parts of our planet the signs of changes can be seen.

Let’s work together and learn to love our home, our planet. Come and work with us and you will see that you will discover that we are only beings part of this world but that we can make many changes for the sake of our existence. In the remote world of the Amazon you will discover that we still live in an undiscovered wilderness and that we can still save and take care of our home from so many factors that accelerate climatic changes.

We need professionals such as Biologists, Chemists, nature researchers, fisheries engineers, agriculture, naturists … forest guards, etc.

Join our team and you will feel inspired by nature and the beings of all kinds that await you and depend on all of us not to leave our world.

We Need Your Help!

We will not survive without oxygen. The Amazon rainforest produces 20% of the oxygen available worldwide, which every human being, big and small, poor and rich, young and old need to live. Isn’t that a reason to help save the trees in the Amazon rainforest? Yes we need your help!
