Save the Amazon - Stand with the guardians of the forest

Fires have always been a threat to the Amazon, but the number of fire outbreaks in 2019 is one of the largest in recent years.

The number of forest fires is higher in areas of the Amazon most affected by deforestation practices. That’s how the agribusiness clears land to make way for cattle and soya farms.

Home to many Indigenous Peoples, the world's largest rainforest is vital for keeping our climate stable. But with industrial exploitation and forest fires ravaging the region, the Amazon is facing unprecedented threats by a greedy industry backed by Bolsonaro’s government.

Protecting these forests is crucial to solving the climate and biodiversity crisis. And that’s exactly what many Indigenous Peoples are doing by standing up for their rights and protecting their lands.
