Clear the confusion about plastic recycling
We need the Amazon – support the WWF appeal
Last summer, the world was outraged by the burning of the Amazon. These were deliberate fires, lit to clear the ground after fresh deforestation.
Horrifyingly, it’s happening again. While the world focuses on the pandemic, new laws have been proposed by the Brazilian government. These have further encouraged illegal invaders to grab, deforest and burn more of the Amazon. This is threatening the rainforest, its wildlife and indigenous peoples.
What can we do about it?
Equipping groups of volunteers to fight forest fires in the Amazon is one of the greatest challenges for Brazilian society in recent years.
Thanks to WWF supporters, more than 1,400 pieces of firefighting equipment were donated to help combat fires in 20 Conservation Units last year.
But it’s not enough. The WWF is working hard in the Amazon, but it needs to continue raising funds to keep operations running. By donating to the WWF appeal, you will directly help local brigades to monitor and combat fires, and support indigenous communities to defend their territories and survive Covid-19 and its impacts.
