Guardians of the Forest
We need your help to make an equally beautiful and urgent documentary! It’s about the Guajajara tribe in Brazil who is defending their territory from illegal loggers destroying their forest. But it’s much more at stake than that! On the same land lives the Awa-Guaja uncontacted tribe which is in great danger of becoming extinct. Will they and the traditional culture of the tribes survive? This is the story of some brave people who are willing to risk everything to defend one of the last wilderness on the planet.
Zero Waste Community
Waste is building up in remote indigenous villages in the Brazilian Amazon forest, threatening the health of indigenous people and the environment they depend on. But with your support its possible to help the Mutum village in the Yawanawa Indigenous Territory to transform itself into the first zero-waste village in the Amazon.

Environmental Defenders Security Framework
Between 2003 and 2015, nearly 900 indigenous people were murdered in Brazil. We are currently witnessing an increase in rural conflicts, land expropriation, and violence. Frontline environmental defenders are being killed in record numbers. In partnership with Not1More, the overall objective of this project is to reinforce the capacity of environmental defenders around the world, to protect human rights and alert duty bearers. This framework is being designed in consultation with environmental defenders to address their urgent needs for appropriate, tailored security support; means to overcome impunity and access legal aid; and to improve access to international support through networking.
