Rainforest Action Network statement on Amazon Rainforest Wildfires

Ginger Cassady, Forest Program Director at Rainforest Action Network (RAN), said:

“We know that protecting tropical rainforests and upholding the rights of Indigenous Peoples are some of the most important ways to address the global impacts of the growing climate crisis. What is happening in the Amazon affects us all over the world. It’s a global emergency that the corporations, financiers, and governments which are driving deforestation need to be held accountable for.”
