Action alert

Please send an email to Jacinto Rey González's company Grupo San José (, which has been caught illegally clearing forests in Paraguay where uncontacted Ayoreo are hiding.
You can write in English or Spanish, and you might like to ask him why his company is breaking the law, and whether they will stop destroying the forests of Paraguay's uncontacted Ayoreo tribe.


So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, and beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and nothing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

Dr. William Milliken, ethnobotanist from London’s Kew Gardens, talks to Survival about the Yanomami’s use of forest plants, the haunting sound of howler monkeys at dawn and why it is important to place a greater value on the botanical knowledge of tribal peoples.
