Help protect the Amazon forest - Emergency Fund

  • Alt

Spikes in fire outbreaks in the Amazon are often related to increased deforestation. The Amazonian municipality of Apui, at the border of the so-called "deforestation belt", has had four times as many fire outbreaks compared to the same time last year. WeForest has now started an Emergency Fund with local conservation and sustainable development NGO Idesam. This fund will invest in fire prevention and firefighting in Apui.
