Brazil: Help the indigenous Ka'apor defend the Amazon rainforest
The indigenous Ka'apor have preserved the last large area of rainforest in the southeastern Amazon, but they are under siege by loggers, cattle ranchers and mining companies. Please help the Ka'apor with a donation to mount an effective defense against the encroachment and keep their ancestral forest safe.
Brazil: The rainforest is our pharmacy
Plant-based remedies from the rainforest are key to the health of indigenous peoples. But this centuries-old knowledge, which has only been passed down orally, is in danger of being lost. A systematic study is working to document the knowledge of the shamans for the benefit of indigenous people and humanity as a whole.
DRC activists fight exploitation, brutality and land grabbing by the palm oil industry
Feronia-PHC’s oil palm plantations in the Democratic Republic of Congo are more than 110 years old – and a never-ending blight on the lives of people in nearby communities. Land grabbing, violence and impoverishment are a sad reality there, but activists of the RIAO-RDC and villagers are standing up to it.
Buying rainforest and reforesting oil palm plantations in Sabah
Borneo’s most biodiverse rainforests can be found in eastern Sabah, yet the palm oil industry is fragmenting the habitat of pygmy elephants, orangutans and many other species. Our partners are buying plots of forest, reforesting plantation land, and linking the reserves into larger protected areas.
Help the Iban people defend their ancestral forests
Activist Matek Geram works tirelessly to defend the forests of Sarawak against palm oil companies and loggers by mapping the ancestral land of indigenous peoples and suing companies that intrude on it. If the resistance cannot wait, he can be found organizing peaceful blockades to keep the loggers out. Please support his work.
Protecting the rainforests of Sumatra
Roads and oil palm plantations, a planned dam, poaching – rainforests in northern Sumatra are in danger. Forest elephants, tigers, rhinos and orangutans are retreating into a shrinking habitat. We are funding ranger patrols to protect local ecosystems and reforestation by local conservationists. Please give to support their work.
