Protecting Indigenous lands and their bio-cultural diversity

Indigenous peoples live on the frontline of the war against climate change, putting their lives at risk to protect havens of biodiversity.

But they are not alone. Throughout the world, millions share their desire to see humans and nature living in symbiosis.

We need to build bridges, uniting all of mother nature’s guardians, in order to protect indigenous rights, ancestral lands, and life itself.

Indigenous territories are home to

80%

of terrestrial biodiversity

Indigenous peoples represent

95%

of human cultural diversity

"Indigenous peoples are the living memory of our earth and of our humanity.
They embody a world in which human diversity is beauty and nature is life, a world that needs to be protected as it is being annihilated."

Our Actions

We use information to mobilise international support for the protection of indigenous rights and of ancestral lands.

The Call of the Earth

The Call of the Earth is a composition of images, sounds, chants and interviews that contextualize the role Indigenous peoples play in biodiversity conservation and the violence they suffer on their path to fulfill their duty of guardians of nature.

"Indigenous peoples are one with the earth, she gives them life and they live to protect her. Their future is intertwined and their stories as well.
When Indigenous peoples call out, it is the earth calling. And we need to listen."
