Help defend the Amazon and save our future

Right now fires rage across the Amazon, killing millions of species and contributing to the rapid loss of earth’s biodiversity.

These forest fires are no accident —the world’s largest rainforest is being deliberately burned for profit by land grabbers who want to clear space to raise more cattle to feed the global demand for cheap beef.

Join the movement to defend the Amazon.

About the Amazon

Life depends on the Amazon. The largest rainforest on earth is home to more plant and animal species than any other ecosystem and produces 20% of the world’s oxygen. We must keep the Amazon rainforest standing!
