By far, most deforestation in the Brazilian Amazone is illegal. Our mission is to preserve and protect tropical rainforests together with indigenous communities by supporting them with science (criminological insights on how to reduce criminal activities), technology (digital cameras with GPS coordinates), and access to enforcement agencies, like police and justice.
The foundation’s three key activities:
- Supply of tools and equipment for better surveillance, such as the distribution of solar-powered GPS-cameras for surveillance teams
- Building local capacity and empowerment
- Funding of legal abilities in support of local justice
We play an active role in the international dialogues where we disseminate the findings of our work on the ground.
