Situation

Grassroots communities across the world are witness to environmental injustices such as deforestation, wildlife crime, overfishing and pollution. After devastating fires in Brazil's Pantanal in recent years, we are helping a group of incredible wildlife defenders to save animals and document habitat destruction. Environmental defenders lack access to the equipment, training and support that can help them to expose and resolve environmental abuse. With your support, we can change that.

Solution

Our Environmental Defenders Project takes practical action for environmental justice. We provide equipment, practical skills, guidance, and support to grassroots activists, journalists, and community groups who need our collective help to have their voices heard. We help environmental defenders to tell their stories with impact. We will give people the tools they need to make their environment safer, healthier, and more sustainable for people and wildlife.
