For decades, the Amazon has been under siege by “business” interests destroying it for profit.
Indigenous and traditional communities that have lived sustainably in the rainforest for generations face constant threat of illegal mining, logging, and cattle farming. And they have no way to protect their land from destruction, because their ownership of it has never been recognized.
Using a brilliant new policy launched in two Brazilian states, our partner Rainforest Trust is working with local Indigenous and traditional community groups to permanently protect more than 2 million acres of Amazon forest. They’re halfway to the goal, and we can help get it over the line.
Every $/€/£ 1 that is donated helps ensure protection for an acre of real Amazon forest — and right now, all donations will be matched by a generous donor, doubling your impact. Your donation will directly protect the Amazon forest and its people — can you chip in?
Every extra dollar we raise will be used to fight the kind of corporate exploitation destroying this and other natural places.
