Video: Reforestation Alert
Reforestation Alert is a video about the community of Buen Jardín de Callaru in the Peruvian Amazon that came together to fight illegal deforestation in their territory and restore what had been destroyed by illegal loggers and coca-growers. The film was produced by Rainforest Foundation US in partnership with the community of Buen Jardín de Callaru, the Organization of the Indigenous People of the Eastern Amazon (Organización Regional de los Pueblos Indígenas del Oriente, or ORPIO) and If Not Us, Then Who.
RFUS, Columbia University, and others teamed up to provide indigenous communities with technologies for monitoring and reporting deforestation.
Columbia University researchers unveil the preliminary findings of a year-long study on Rainforest Foundation US’s territorial monitoring work in the Peruvian Amazon.
