British rocker Sir Mick Jagger has been made an honorary ambassador for the Amazon rainforest.
The Rolling Stones star, who is currently travelling through South America, was handed the honour by officials at the Peruvian government.
Jagger will now raise awareness about the region and its need for protection.
A representative for the area told the star during the ceremony in Peru, "You are our ally. Your presence is a great support in our fight to protect our ecology, to the effort to draw world attention to the Madre de Dios area."
Jagger has also travelled to Lima with his partner L'Wren Scott to visit President Ollatna Humala during his trip.
