Action for Bolivia
Action For Bolivia is an international grassroots movement, dedicated to protecting the unique ecosystems of Bolivia and the many indigenous communities who live within them. We formed in response to the recent forest fires that have raged across millions of acres of Amazon rainforest, the Chiquitania dry forest and other unique biomes and protected national parks. We see these fires as an act of industrial ecocide, where the Bolivian government’s priority is short term economic growth over long term environmental sustainability. With the destruction of these habitats, where many indigenous communities live and endemic flora and fauna exist, it is a profound loss for Bolivia as well as the world.
