80x2025 Twitter Toolkit
We call for a comprehensive global agreement for the permanent protection of 80 percent of the Amazon Rainforest by 2025, agreed to by all Amazon governments and backed by Indigenous peoples and the global community.
To spread the word and help get the motion through at the IUCN, consider tweeting some of these suggested messages:
In days, IUCN members will vote on an urgent motion for the Amazon – the fate of its people and the “heart pump” of humanity depends on it.
The latest evidence is alarming: arriving at 20-25% deforestation in the Amazon Basin is the tipping point for the rainforest to flip toward drier ecosystems, such as savannahs. But there's a way to stop it!
In 2020, during the pandemic, at least 2.3 million hectares of primary forests were lost in the 9 countries of the Amazon Basin. We must urgently protect it.
65.8% of Amazonia is subject to some type of fixed or ongoing destruction: whether through oil and mineral exploitation, development of road infrastructure, agricultural activity, or the presence of hydroelectric plants.
The Amazon basin river system produces 20% of the planet's freshwater. We need to stand with #WaterProtectors and #DefendTheDefenders! #WaterIsLife #MniWiconi
Approximately half (45 percent) of the intact forest in Amazonia are in Indigenous territories, an area larger than France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Norway, and Spain combined (FAO-FILAC 2021).
