The Maya Forest is like Mexico’s Amazon — home to rare and threatened species like jaguars, tapirs, and howler monkeys — and the heartland of Indigenous communities stretching back centuries.
But it’s about to get torn open -- for a multi-billion dollar “tourist train”!
One tiny local group is fighting it with everything they have — but they have literally 4 staff. They’ve filed a legal challenge, but without urgent funding for constitutional experts and lawyers, legal fees, and research, the case will go nowhere.
This is a true David vs. Goliath story, exactly what our community does best. If 5000 of us chip in today, we can ramp up our fight and get these brave nature defenders the cash they need in days — without the mountains of paperwork and red tape, and months of waiting, that they just can’t afford.
Can you chip in to save Mexico’s Amazon?
