Conserving Kayapó lands in the Brazilian Amazon   (3 min.)

Since this video was made, ICFC has become the lead supporter of the Kayapó conservation effort (and program pioneer Barbara Zimmerman is now with ICFC). Conservation International, which made this film, played a key role in the development of this program and was instrumental in setting up a Brazilian trust fund to provide long-term partial support for conservation of Kayapó lands.
