Ontem foi o Dia da Amazônia. Triste acompanhar de longe notícias de falta de prevenção e amor com algo tão importante, não só para o Brasil, quanto para o Mundo.
Show your love for the Amazon today. 💚
The fires are still burning in the Amazon, calling worldwide attention to the ongoing crisis of tropical deforestation. The massive global response to this crisis demonstrates a growing awareness of how essential the Amazon is to our climate future--not to mention the immediate safety and well-being of the Indigenous people who live in it.
So what can YOU do
🚨 As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. We have extended our Amazon emergency mobilization fundraiser for the month of September -- 100% of donations made via the link in our bio will be redirected to frontline groups fighting deforestation across the Amazon.
🌳 Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s work to protect the world's vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; our approach is scientifically proven to be the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires—but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between forest & farming communities and the public & private sectors.
📰 Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. The fires are still burning, so please don’t let this fade out of the news cycle.
🛒 Be a conscientious consumer, taking care to choose products from companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation.
🗳 When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.
