Support Forest Guardians in the Amazon

Tax deductible
“We reforest the land, but we also reforest the hearts of humanity.”
- Puyr Tembé

The new film We Are Guardians follows Indigenous leader and activist Puyr Tembé and forest guardian Marçal Guajajara as they fight to protect their territories from the ongoing encroachment of illegal loggers and invaders. These Guardians have immediate needs to continue their work, such as equipment, resources and training. Your donations will help support the direct needs of these Forest Guardians.


The Tembé territory of Alto Rio Guamá is located in the Brazilian state of Pará, on the southern edge of the Amazon. Nearly 3,000 square kilometers in size, the Alto Rio Guamá Territory is one of the most threatened Indigenous territories in Brazil and continuously faces pressure from an onslaught of illegal logging and ranching. The Tembé forest guardians make routine surveillance missions of their land on foot, by motorcycle, and by boat, but they need support in the form of radios, drones, fuel for transportation, solar panels for their strategic bases throughout the territory, and additional gear such as sturdy boots and backpacks to continue their work.
The Guajajara territory of Araribóia is located further south in the Brazilian state of Maranhão. At the edge of the Amazonian and Cerrado biomes, Araribóia is also incredibly threatened by illegal loggers and has seen a significant decrease in its forest health over the last 30 years. At over 4,000 square kilometers, it is a huge undertaking for the guardians to survey their territory and therefore they need extra support for fuel, communication devices such as radios, food on multi-day missions, and tools such as machetes for missions into the jungle.
Donations will also help support Indigenous Guardians and their efforts to make their voices heard at demonstrations in Brazil's capital city.

Directors Edivan, Rob and Chelsea thank you!
