Clear the confusion about plastic recycling
Do five simple things to help the Amazon rainforest
Last summer, we were outraged by the deliberate burning of the Amazon. Trees that had stood for hundreds of years were chopped down and devastating fires were lit to clear the ground.
Yet this is happening again – right now. At a rate even faster than before. Between August 2019 and July 2020, deforestation increased by 33% compared with the previous year. This led to nearly 30,000 fires in August alone.
What can we do about it?
WWF is taking a leading role in protecting the Amazon and the communities that live there. But we can all be a crucial part of the solution – each and every one of us has a role to play.
That’s why WWF is asking you to do whatever you can to help. Take a look at five simple actions to make a difference today.
Whether it’s standing with indigenous peoples at this challenging time, calling for our government to make sure they’re not adding fuel to the fire, or simply spreading the word – inaction is not an option.
