The Biggest Reserve in the World

To the presidents of Columbia, Venezuela and Brazil:

As global citizens, we are deeply concerned about climate change and the rapid devastation of the Amazon forest. We urge you to work together for the creation of the the largest environmental reserve in the world, protecting 135 million hectares of Amazon. This could be your most important legacy to the world, and the most significant seed to plant at the next UN climate summit, to be held in Paris in 2015.

An ambitious project is underway to create the largest environmental reserve in the world, protecting 135 million hectares of Amazon forest. That’s more than twice the size of France! But it won’t happen unless Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela’s leaders know the public wants it. That’s where we come in.

Colombia has just said it is on board. Now if we create a huge global push to save the Amazon and combine it with national polls in all three countries, we can give the Colombian president the mandate he needs to persuade the others to join. All three leaders are looking for opportunities to shine at the next UN climate summit. Let’s give it to them.

The Amazon is vital to life on earth -- 20% of our oxygen comes from this magnificent rainforest, and it plays a key role in mitigating global climate change. Experts say this reserve would be a total game-changer for stopping rampant deforestation. Sign the petition now, when we reach 1 million signers, indigenous leaders will deliver the petition and polls directly to the three governments.
