Forest purchase in the Amazon

tl_files/tiny_templates/floresta.jpgDue to current events, we are now calling on all people to donate money to buy land in the Brazilian rainforest for the preservation of the indigenous peoples, flora and fauna.

Why now?

Living Gaia e.V. is raising money to buy land in the Brazilian Amazon to protect the Huni Kuin tribeand uncontacted tribes who are also in the region. Bolsonaro as Brazil's new president has posed a massive threat to the biodiversity of the Amazon and its indigenous people. The Brazilian authority responsible for the reserves, Funai, has been transferred from the Ministry of Justice to the Ministry of Agriculture. The governor of Acre calls for local agro-revolution. This means that the reserve land is no longer safe from looting and deforestation.

How?

The acquisition of forest areas, which are now privately owned by Brazilian farmers, should enable them to be preserved and protected. (Reserve land is state property and cannot simply be bought).
We will buy the first piece of land in Acre, Brazil, in the community of Jordao. For over 5 years we have had personal contact with the Huni Kuin tribe - the true people. 


++Update++


A new and much larger piece of land has opened up for the purchase. It is currently owned by a Brazilian farmer and is for sale. The location is strategically better as it borders on a small piece of land that is already privately owned by Huni Kuin on the Tarauacá River (bought about 20 years ago by the chief of Huni Kuin with prize money he won for a film). This larger piece of land also borders on land on the other side where UNCONTACTED Indigenous live. The acquisition of this piece of land would thus benefit both peoples. For this we have to collect about 300.000 Euro.

In principle, land is to be purchased in the Amazon region in order to bring it into the private possession of the indigenous people themselves and thus protect it from exploitation and offer the indigenous people a permanent habitat. What the reserves have achieved so far will no longer be safe in the future. The reserves are in state ownership and are now endangered. 

The donated money will be used to secure land for indigenous cultures while protecting the forest.

In January Alexandra travels to Brasilia and Jordao in order to work out even more plans and maps with lawyers and environmental organisations as well as organisations for the protection of the indigenous people.Haux. Haux. (beginning, ending, harmony)
