Campaign details

Nearly all protected areas are, or have been, the ancestral homelands of tribal peoples who have been dependent on, and managed them for millennia. But in the name of “conservation”, tribal peoples are being illegally evicted from these lands. They are accused of “poaching” because they hunt their food, they face arrest and beatings, torture and death at the hands of anti-poaching squads. Ironically, although the tribes have been evicted, tourists (and in some cases even fee-paying big-game hunters) are welcomed in. Conservation organizations must recognize that tribal peoples are the best conservationists, and they must promote rather than undermine their land rights.

They must stick to international law, protect tribal peoples’ rights to their lands, give them what help they need in protecting it, listen to them, and then be prepared to back them up as much as they can.
