With the Land project, we want to protect the forest and its inhabitants. In concrete terms, this means that we want to enable the Huni Kuin to co-establish and manage a reserve of about 16,000 hectares of land in Jordão. The land is located between the Huni Kuin’s land and uncontacted groups that live in voluntary isolation. The area shall provide a protected home for both groups.
Thankfully, only a small share of the land is farmland that must be reforested. Most of the land is well-preserved primary forest. Together with the Huni Kuin, we will create a reserve that benefits both wildlife and the human population.
The possibilities on projects on the land are manifold. Surely, the protection of wildlife and food security for the Huni Kuin are the most important issues. In addition, the Huni Kuin may use the land to create income by regenerative projects such as agroforestry. The prosperity of people without the destruction of the forest is possible. If we support the Huni Kuin, we give them, the rainforest and our earth a future.
