Deforestation, degradation and carbon release threaten the Mother Earth of indigenous peoples, forest collector and riverbank communities, plant and animal species of all sizes and beauty. More than this, they accentuate the climate changes that affect the whole planet. RAISG has produced studies and maps that enable the Amazon forest to be better understood and protected.
