‘Pygmy’ is a collective term for several hunter-gatherer tribes who live in the forests of central Africa. They are also called ‘forest peoples’.
Their future is threatened by logging and agriculture which is destroying their forests, and conservation schemes which evict them from the forests that remain.
How you can help
Please write to the President of Cameroon urging him to recognize ‘Pygmies’ as indigenous peoples with communal rights to live in and protect their ancestral territories.
