The Amazon is under threat. The Brazilian government is planning to build two massive dams on one of the Amazon’s most important tributaries, the Madeira River. The projects would push many species to the brink of extinction, and would affect the land and livelihoods of thousands of river bank dwellers and indigenous people. But it is not too late. With your help we can show the Brazilian government that the rivers of Amazonia are worth protecting. Write to the Brazilian Environment Minister and the Mines and Energy Minister telling them the Madeira is too important a treasure to destroy.
