Thanks to all those of you who took action for Paraguay's last uncontacted tribe last month. We've just heard that senior Paraguayan ministers met recently to discuss how to protect the Ayoreo's land from further destruction. By growing the strength of the global movement for tribal peoples' rights, we can ensure that the remaining uncontacted Ayoreo don't suffer the fate of Guireja (above), forced out of her forest as it was destroyed around her. If you haven't yet emailed Paraguay's president, please help keep the pressure up →

News that 80% of Peru's Nahua tribe tested positive for mercury was swiftly followed by the discovery that Brazilian tribes are also affected. We are working to put pressure on both governments to act, including presenting evidence to the UN.
