Deep in the Amazon Uncontacted Frontier live Matsés Indians, known also as the Jaguar People.

A national park has been created on the Indians’ land, but this won’t protect them. There is already an oil concession inside, and the government wants to allow oil exploration to take place. This will be devastating for the Indians.

The only way to protect the Indians is to create an uncontacted indigenous reserve exclusively for them on their ancestral land, where no drilling, mining or logging can take place. The creation of the national park is not enough.

If this isn’t done soon, the uncontacted Matsés could be wiped out.

How you can help

Please urge the Peruvian government to prohibit all oil exploration on uncontacted Matsés’ lands by writing to the Peruvian president, Martin Vizcarra.
