The ACEER Legacy Award
ACEER honors, with our Legacy Award, individuals and organizations who have made outstanding, lifetime contributions to conservation of the Amazon rainforest. The first ACEER Legacy Award was given to John Easterling and Olivia Newton-John Easterling in 2012 for their tireless support of rainforest conservation in Peru, serving as global conservation ambassadors, and through their generous philanthropic work. Five other individuals and one indigenous federation have received the award since 2012.
In 2022 we are pleased to award our eighth ACEER Legacy Award to Gloria Ushigua, an indigenous rights activist from Ecuador.
