We are working on transferring the money we collected to the defenders of the Forest, and they have important plans to spend it:
with so many activists facing charges and court cases as a result of prosecution for their peaceful protests in defence of the precious Bialowieza Forest, the priority is on providing effective legal aid. The funds we collected will make a real change to the lives of people who risked everything to protect the Forest from destruction.
with winter approaching fast, and people in the Camp for Forest still working daily to monitor and collect evidence about illegal logging, as well as disrupting the work of massive harvesting machines, the Camp will use the donations to secure equipment and a warm place to live in the cold months.
We want to be transparent and accountable about how we spend your donations - for more information please see our donation Policy.
