Dear Cause Supporters,
Amazon Watch pulled out all the stops to make a powerful and meaningful impact this year – with your help we achieved pivotal victories with our indigenous partners. New precedents for indigenous rights were set in Ecuador, oil companies abandoned efforts to drill in the Peruvian Amazon, and Chevron is on the run from justice facing legal actions against it in several nations.
We do the work, but you make these milestones possible. Ours is a winning partnership.
Yet we face new and continuing challenges that serve to reinforce our commitment to a vibrant Amazon. Ecuador and Peru are moving to auction millions of acres of Amazon rainforest for oil development. The massive Belo Monte dam is under construction in Brazil, and more than 60 dams are planned throughout the Amazon. Chevron must be held accountable in the $19 billion ruling for deliberately polluting rainforests, rivers and communities.
With your support we will continue to fight and we will meet these challenges.
Please take a moment to make your tax-deductible contribution to our work to defend the Amazon, our indigenous partners and our future before it's too late.
