From @AmazonFrontlines:

Reclaiming Indigenous lands in the Amazon - enough is enough. Last week, the @nacion.siekopai (Secoya) nation of Ecuador’s Amazon took action to recover their ancestral territory from illegal settlers. This video captures this historic moment for the small nation declared at risk of physical and cultural extinction, whose ancestral territory is surrounded by palm oil plantations, ranchers, and oil fields. In full exercise of their rights to territory, self-governance, and self-determination, community leaders, youth, and elders from six communities gathered on Wednesday in the invaded area of their territory along the Kokoya river – covering about 200ha of once pristine rainforest - and pacifically reclaimed their land.

With the illegal settlers now evicted, the Siekopai now face the challenge of rewilding the important headwaters of the Kokaya River after a decade of cattle ranching, poaching, and illegal logging. We stand with our Siekopai partners in this struggle in defense of their lands, lives, and ways of life!

The Endangered Forest Musk Deer hadn’t been seen in Vietnam in more than 20 years. But this year, after receiving a photo tip from the local community of a musk deer that had been captured by hunters, a team of conservationists, including #TeamRewild member An Nguyen, set up camera traps in Vietnam’s mountains to find out if there were Forest Musk Deer living in them. Two of the team’s 10 camera traps captured photos of a Forest Musk Deer! The team is hoping to do more surveys to determine how many deer may be living in the mountains. Putting an end to wire snare trapping is one of the best ways to help protect the rare deer and other forest-dwelling animals. #ConservationOptimism @rewild
