The Guardians of the Amazon, a group of Indigenous Guajajara people from Brazil, are fighting to stop illegal loggers from destroying their forest home and their uncontacted Awá relatives. Six of them have been killed. 

You can help the Guardians fight back against devastating deforestation and increasing violence. Take action now! 

Survival International works in partnership with Indigenous peoples all over the world to amplify their voices on the global stage and campaign for their lands to be protected so they can live in the way the choose. We have supported the Amazon Guardians for many years alongside our global campaign for the survival of uncontacted tribes.
