The Xingu Territory and its people are threatened by illegal fishing, hunting, logging, fires and agro-chemicals used in neighboring farms.
AFV assists the indigenous communities in their efforts to monitor the forest and focuses on re-equipping existing surveillance posts.
AFV also regularly assists local communities through the provision of firefighter equipment and seeks to provide training to improve response time to uncontrolled wild-fires.
