buy the boat

The Wampis urgently need a large boat to help fight the loggers and miners attacking their land.   The reason is that they live in 67 villages scattered over a vast area - more than six times the size of Herefordshire - with their territory divided by a large mountain range.  On either side of the range run two large rivers.   To plan their resistance, the Wampis leaders have to bring leaders of their scattered communities together…and they can only do this by boat.  A large boat.  A boat costing £5000. A boat to be called The Hereford when we have raised the next £5000 through the interactive map or through direct donations to the Forest Peoples Programme.

Any pounds you can put towards The Hereford will make significant differences to the fight to save the Wampis rainforest.
