Regeneration places life at the heart of every action and choice, extending its influence across the entire spectrum of existence. This principle resonates just as profoundly within the realms of family, communities, cities, schools, spirituality, commerce, and governments, as it does in the awe-inspiring context of addressing climate challenges.


Protectors of the Sacred Forest Impact Initiatives


"Scientists studying the Amazon and all its wondrous assets (agree).

Today we stand in a moment of destiny: The tipping point is here, it is now."

- Carlos Nobre, Nobel Prize-winning scientist.


In Acre, Northwestern Brazil, the Puyanawa Tribe lived for thousands of years in harmony with nature, known as Protectors of the Sacred Forests. However, in 1905, many of the tribe were massacred, the rest enslaved and dispossessed from their ancestral lands. Now their Sacred Forests are threatened by illegal burning, contributing to the "Savanization of the Amazon" and ecosystems collapse.


Our objectives are to return the Sacred Lands to the Puyanawa, to protect these rainforests, one of the world's greatest biodiversity hotspots.  Ultimately we also aim to create an institute for education, research, cultural and ecosystems regeneration, via bio-economies and biodiversity / hybrid carbon credits.

Global Benefits

If successful, this project provides a model to protect indigenous peoples and ecosystems globally.


SRI is working with the Puyanawas to accelerate technologies and bioeconomies to protect and regenerate vital ecosystems, with 120 scientists, innovators, climate change leaders, and other organization partners. Together, we qualified as XPRIZE Rainforest 2023 Semifinalists in Singapore, and our work was recognized at the Science Summit at the United Nations during the General Assembly in New York, 2023, at COP28 in Dubai, and at Davos World Economic Forum 2024.

Heroes of Regeneration / The Regeneration Generation Film

A 2024 internationally co-produced documentary about collaboration for cultural and ecosystem regeneration, featuring Indigenous leadership protecting sacred ecosystems, along with scientists, activists artists, and leaders in sustainability and regeneration, we collaborate to shift consciousness and awaken humanity, to save life on earth.

This project raises awareness to inspire and transform the way we relate and do business - to change humanity's focus from exploitation to regeneration, and from wealth to wellbeing. 


From the producer of XMEN and Transformers, director Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri presents humanity's greatest quest, to align inner and outer Nature. Regenerating their culture of wellness, spirituality, and ecosystem preservation, Indigenous leaders share their wisdom and collaborate with international artists, innovators, scientists, and technologists. At the Science Summit at the United Nations, and Davos World Economic Forum, they meet with Al Gore, Carlos Nobre, Nobel Prize-winning earth scientist, Native American Wonder Woman superhero and cultural revivalist Eugene Brave Rock, Grammy-winning music composer Ricky Kej, and many others, who join this exploration into the heart of Nature.
