Linking culture and conservation in the Caura River Basin

Caura Futures supports the conservation of the Caura River Basin ecosystem by providing training and tools to safeguard indigenous knowledge, improve human health, and promote good ecosystem stewardship.

In these endeavors, local Ye’kwana and Sanema people make all decisions regarding activities to be realized in their communities. They curate and control all indigenous knowledge archives, and they review and approve all introduced technologies. In Venezuela, we work with an independent non-profit organization, Caura Weichojo.

Founded in 2005, Caura Futures, Inc. is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3)non-profit organization.
