The Awá: an historic victory
In 2012 we launched a global campaign to save a little-known tribe in the Amazon, one of the last nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes left in Brazil. With more than 30% of their forests destroyed by illegal logging, we asked you to help save the Earth's most threatened tribe.
You responded in your thousands, and, because of your emails, Awáicons and donations, the campaign made headlines around the world. Brazil's Minister of Justice was forced to act, sending in troops and federal agents to expel the loggers.
The operation has just been completed; all loggers and ranchers have been removed from the Awá indigenous territory. This is an incredible victory which would never have happened without your help.
