Fires continue to rage in the Amazon

Record number of fires have been reported in the Brazilian Amazon, most of which have been started deliberately. You may feel frustrated and sickened by this senseless destruction. Here are two positive things you can do to help protect these vulnerable forests, their biodiversity and indigenous people.
Forest Clearance

1. Sponsor an acre of threatened cloud forest in Ecuador, or become a member of Rainforest Concern

2. Support our partners, Amazon Watch. For over a decade, Rainforest Concern have worked with Amazon Watch, protecting the rainforests of the Amazon Basin, and in particular, the forests of Brazil.

'Now that the world is finally paying attention, we need to seize the moment and act decisively to stop the Bolsonaro regime's toxic agenda and defend the rights of the indigenous peoples who call the Amazon home.' Amazon Watch, August 2019
