Call on government to stop the destruction of the Amazon

The issue

Fires are devastating the Amazon again. But this isn’t just another year of burning. Our destruction is making the world’s biggest rainforest dangerously unbalanced. If we continue, the Amazon as we know it could soon come tumbling down for good.

What can we do about it?

We now have a unique opportunity to end the UK's role in the destruction. Thanks to pressure from WWF and its supporters, the UK government is finally listening.

The UK government are considering new laws that could bring an end to our role in the destruction. The laws will make sure that products imported to the UK aren’t fuelling the demand for deforested land. This would be a huge step in preventing the Amazon, and other precious places, from collapsing.

But the government will only act if enough of us speak up. We need the message to come across loud and clear – don’t let products imported to the UK push the Amazon closer to collapse. Add your name to WWF’s petition, The Amazon On The Edge, and call for new laws to help end the UK’s role in the destruction of the Amazon.
