Indigenous peoples make up 6% of the world’s population, but protect 80% of our biodiversity.

Indigenous people have the knowledge and experience to offer solutions to many of the issues posed by the climate crisis. Their protection of pristine environments puts them in direct conflict with those who would continue to exploit and despoil the planet. Indigenous land rights need to be protected in order for communities to continue protecting our biodiversity. By standing with them, we stand with the earth.
