Write a letter for the Zo'é

1. Write your letter, then 2. Complete it and 3. Mail it

The Zo’é first met outsiders in 1987, when evangelical missionaries made contact. Decimated by disease soon after, their numbers are now growing again.

But they are still a very vulnerable tribe. Invaders are closing in on their land: nut gatherers, goldminers, missionaries and hunters periodically approach, and the soya frontier is getting ever closer.

Your letter really can make a difference to the Zo’é of Brazil.

How you can help

Write a letter (in Portuguese, English or your own language) to the Brazilian Minister of Justice expressing your concern about invaders approaching the Zo’é’s territory.

Dear Minister Jardim

Will my letter make a difference?
Yes. Time and again, letters from Survival supporters have called governments and organisations to account. Policies have changed and lives have been saved.
