The Amazon Conservation Team Brazil (ECAM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the biological resources of the Amazon and the people who live there. A branch of the USA-based NGO Amazon Conservation Team, ECAM's mission is to strengthen indigenous communities and conserve the natural environment. ECAM supports community-based mapping of forest territories, and works hand in hand with local indigenous communities to devise and implement conservation strategies, seeking to increase steadily the number of indigenous peoples in Amazonia able to monitor, manage sustainably and protect their traditional forestlands.
