There are around 2,200 Matsés living on the Peru-Brazil frontier in the Amazon rainforest.
In 2012, Canadian oil company Pacific E&P began to explore for oil on land inhabited by the Matsés and neighbouring uncontacted Indians.
The company’s oil block ‘135’ lies directly over an area that has been proposed as a reserve to protect the uncontacted tribes.
Though the Matsés have repeatedly opposed the company’s work on their land, their protests have been ignored.
How you can help
Please urge the Peruvian government to cancel Pacific E&P’s contract by writing to the Peruvian president, P.P Kuczynski.
