2 Ways to Protect Ambue Ari from Wildfire

By Jenny Boyd | FIWY Development Director

Dear Friends,

Fire season is around the corner, and unfortunately, we can only expect worse wildfires in the Amazon every year. Last year you helped CIWY build 3 new wells along Ambue Ari’s perimeter and acquire more fire-fighting equipment.

We’re better equipped than ever to fight this year’s fires, but there are always costs. With low volunteer numbers, we will need to hire temporary workers to clear fire breaks and fight fires as they approach. This is usually an exhausting, 24-hour-a-day effort, sometimes lasting several weeks.

In 2020, we lost over 400 hectares to wildfire, and it will take many years to regrow the jungle and see wildlife return there. Let’s make sure this doesn’t happen again.

There are 2 easy ways you can help this month:

  1. Vote for CIWY here, to help us win funding from Piensa Verde for fire protection! No donation needed, just a gmail address and a click to vote. Deadline is July 13
  2. Donate through GlobalGiving on July Bonus Day: July 20! Donations between $100 and $1000 will receive matching funds.

Thank you for protecting the wild jaguars, pumas, ocelots, tapirs, howler monkeys, giant anteaters, and so many others that live in the 987 hectares of Ambue Ari. None of CIWY’s work would be possible without supporters like you.

Kindest regards,

The CIWY/FIWY teams

Queridos amigos,

La temporada de incendios está a la vuelta de la esquina y, lamentablemente, solo podemos esperar peores incendios forestales en la Amazonía cada año. El año pasado ayudaron a CIWY a construir 3 nuevos pozos a lo largo del perímetro de Ambue Ari y adquirir más equipos contra incendios.

Estamos mejor equipados que nunca para combatir los incendios de este año, pero siempre hay costos. Con un bajo número de voluntarios, tendremos que contratar trabajadores temporales para despejar los cortafuegos y combatir los incendios a medida que se acercan. Esto suele ser un esfuerzo agotador de 24 horas al día, que a veces dura varias semanas.

En 2020, perdimos más de 400 hectáreas por incendios forestales, y tomará muchos años volver a crecer la selva y ver regresar la vida silvestre allí. Asegurémonos de que esto no vuelva a suceder.

Hay 2 maneras fáciles en las que puedes ayudar este mes:

  1. ¡Vota por CIWY aquí, para ayudarnos a ganar fondos de Piensa Verde para la protección contra incendios! No se necesita donación, solo una dirección de Gmail y un clic para votar. La fecha límite es el 13 de julio.
  2. Dona a través de GlobalGiving en el Día de bonificación de julio: ¡20 de julio! Las donaciones entre $100 y $1000 recibirán fondos de contrapartida.

Gracias por proteger a los salvajes jaguares, pumas, ocelotes, tapires, monos aulladores, osos hormigueros gigantes y tantos otros que viven en las 987 hectáreas de Ambue Ari. Nada del trabajo de CIWY sería posible sin simpatizantes como ustedes.

Saludos cordiales,

Los equipos CIWY/FIWY
