Who are we raising for & why?
The Amazon is burning. Parts of the Brazilian Amazon are experiencing unprecedented fires. Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research has reported a recent 84% increase in forest fires from the same period in 2018. Brazil’s largest city, Sao Paulo, experienced a blackout caused by smoke from the fires.
Ecosystems are being devastated and countless indigenous peoples are under siege, being displaced from the forests they have fought to guard and protect. The aftershocks to the global climate could be severe. Let us remember that the Amazon is a key player in water cycles worldwide, as far as China, India, and the U.S.
This is unprecedented and reflects a global increase in forest destruction through the fire, caused by two major factors: One, drought conditions exacerbated by increased deforestation. Two, intentional slash and burn clearing for agriculture and livestock raising.
This is not normal, and, like you, ASH sees enormous urgency in addressing these factors.
Our mission is and always has been to partner with indigenous and other local communities to protect tropical forests and strengthen traditional culture, and the Amazon — the world’s largest rainforest, home to millions of species and an indispensable global carbon store.
We are intimately aware of the challenges involved, and we are setting up a fund to assist communities affected by the current large-scale blazes.
The situation can feel overwhelming, as very few of us have either the opportunity or the means to directly influence policy, but we can still individually contribute in a meaningful way to the response to this global crisis.
Most obviously, we can build awareness of the problem in our own communities and well beyond. We can use whatever means we have to try to communicate with those in a position to do much more. And we can align ourselves with the many organisations whose missions address different aspects of the problem.
One of the world’s most famous activist quotes is certainly worth repeating here: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
We encourage you to donate as much as you can, even after these particular headlines have faded. We are working with many organisations across the globe to continue planting trees to help with restoring habitats but more importantly help with reducing global carbon emissions each year.
We believe that the simple solution of stopping the destruction of the last remaining rainforests will positively impact species, communities and the planet.
A £5 donation will help plant one tree and also support our partner’s most urgent works around the world. Their conservation work makes a tangible difference.
