A double win – thanks to you


Thank you – for tribes, for nature, for all humanity.

Your tireless campaigning for tribal peoples’ rights has resulted in two major victories.

In Germany the government has finally signed up to the key international law on indigenous peoples after a decade-long campaign by Survival supporters.

This isn’t just technical, it’ll make a real difference on the ground – because German aid money has been funding conservation projects by WWF and others that have been responsible for terrible abuses of local people in Africa.

This victory has been followed by a momentous win in Peru: after a long campaign by local organizations and Survival supporters worldwide, a huge new reserve for uncontacted tribes has been created.

The Yavari-Tapiche reserve is inhabited by members of the Matses, Marubo and other tribes. Oil companies have been eyeing up the area for decades – now it’s gained valuable new protection.

The people living there will of course never know the vital role you have played in this victory – so from all of us at Survival, thank you.
Almost 350 people around the world have signed up so far to Run for Survival
– there’s still time to join them!
And finally, huge thanks to all of our supporters who’ve signed up to our Run for Survival 5k, 10k or half marathon challenge. We’re delighted that so far almost 350 of you will be running around the world to help fight for tribal peoples’ rights. A special thank you to all of you who’ve gone one step further and are also fundraising for the race.

Haven’t signed up yet? There’s still time – join us on the May 28 - 31 by taking on your own challenge. You can sign up here, or contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any questions.
