Quelle désolation,protégeons la forêt et ses habitants, battons-nous contre les destructeurs. Nous pouvons par nos achats protéger la forêt et plantons des arbres, autant que nous le pouvons!

Next year we will have enough money to go out and protect the forests - in case of logging - the intruders will be shot on the spot !!! Worldwide!

However, we will soon need help!!!

What it comes down to is greed and money. The Brazilian gov't. could care less about the tribe or destroying their home. In fact they have been killing them rather than saving them. It is sad that they cannot be left alone as well. Their home is disappearing so will they.

Profits yield power. Tragically, the most vulnerable members of society are the helpless victims. Where is the conscience in this? Powers that be have no conscience?

There has been isolated attempts to enlist indigenous people to protect the eco-systems but when faced with armed intruders as many are, they are no match. The lust of money IS the root of all evil.
