Women on a Mission

A series of short films highlighting incredible leaders making a difference in their communities


The Awajún women in the village of Shampuyacu are reviving their culture and restoring their forest after decades of destruction. At the heart of their efforts: a “women’s forest” featuring traditional plants — and traditional knowledge — that has grown into a thriving tourism trade and a burgeoning tea business. ​ To capture traditional Awajún knowledge for future generations, the younger women are turning to technology — using cell phones to record the wisdom of their elders.​ See more from the series: https://www.conservation.org/stories/Pages/Women-on-a-Mission.aspx
