Emergency Amazon Fire Fund Report September 2020
Fires in the Amazon are a seasonal occurrence, but last year’s fires captured the world’s attention. At the peak in August 2019, there were 30,901 fires – three times the number compared with August of the previous year.
Thanks to your generous donations, we raised almost $2 million in the US for fire response and recovery. This is our second report summarizing the impact of your support, including stories from the field, and what’s next for WWF in the Amazon.
