The Amazon is burning down and we need to do something about it. The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil ). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January. The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do? -As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. - Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. Link in bio. - Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. - Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation. - When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy. @coiabamazonia @greenpeacebrasil @amazonwatch @amazonfrontlines (Ecuador ) @rainforestalliance #StopBolsonaro #Amazonia #RainforestAlliance #SaveTheAmazon #PrayForAmazonia #AmazonRainforest #ActOnClimate #ForestsResist #ClimateCrisis

A few months ago I was in Ecuador, in the Amazon, meeting and photographing women, and interviewing them and talking about how their kids, families and entire communities of aborígenes are suffering because the oil drilling is destroying nature and contaminating the water and soil and as a consequence killing the wildlife. This issue doesn’t only concern the natives but should be a concern of all of us. The Amazon is the lung of our planet, and we need to support it and protect it. The Waorani people need our help to protect half a million acres of Amazon rainforest from oil drilling. I stand with them in this struggle for indigenous rights, rainforest protection and our global climate! Now it’s your turn - take a selfie to show your support for the Waorani’s struggle and sign the Waorani’s letter to protect the Amazon here (link in bio ) : http://bit.ly/waoaction #WaoraniResistance @WaoResistencia @amazonfrontlines

I photographed Adam Driver a couple of years ago for the cover of GQ. This year he is co-starring in BlacKkKlansman along side John David Washington, in a movie that touches you and makes you think about all the injustice that we have in the world. This inspires me to do my best to help making a change. Congratulations Adam Driver on your nomination for the Golden Globes as a Best Supporting Actor for BlacKkKlansman.
A couple of years ago I photographed Lady Gaga for her charity Born This Way Foundation, and this week after watching A Star Is Born reminded me of how beautiful and talented this woman is. #bornthiswayfoundation
