The botanical resources of ayahuasca are being threatened because of the growing demand and ayahuasca tourism. Some initiatives for the protection of these plant species exist, but the reality shows that this issue needs more attention. This session will share the results of a scoping study implemented by the Ethnobotanical Stewardship Council about the impact of ayahuasca tourism on the sustainability of ayahuasca and insights and experiences regarding stimulating the biodiversity and cultivation of ayahuasca.
