We are riding the wave of what has been a demanding and wildly successful year. Thank you for making 2012 a truly powerful year for the Amazon and indigenous peoples.
As we enter the New Year, we are embarking on exciting plans for pioneering initiatives and taking our campaigns to new levels. We are ramping up our efforts in Ecuador where the government has just launched a new round of oil leases that affects nearly ten million acres of pristine rainforest and thousands of indigenous peoples. The rainforests in Peru may soon face similar threats. While loans for the Belo Monte dam in Brazil were green lighted despite growing opposition, we remain committed to defending the Xingu River.
Your support matters more than ever to face the challenges ahead. Amazon Watch has emerged as an incredible force supporting indigenous peoples, standing up to powerful economic interests and championing alternatives to forest destruction. You are the pulse of this movement. This holiday season, give the unique gift of rainforest protection with the click of a button. Thank You!
For the Earth and Future Generations,
