House On Fire investigates and documents when laws to protect forests and wildlife are not enforced. We use innovative, direct actions to expose and confront illegal activities in rainforest sanctuaries and in countries’ forests through cooperative agreements with established law enforcement agencies.
Direct action to enforce laws protecting our forests
International and national laws protecting the world’s forests are difficult to enforce. House On Fire uses direct action to defend wildlife of the rainforest and works with national authorities to tackle illegal hunting and deforestation of forests.
Direct Action of the Rainforests
Despite our relatively small size and limited resources, House On Fire’s campaigns are effective because we use direct action to achieve results, instead of billboards, petitions or protest marches. Our campaigns, mainly crewed by passionate volunteers, will save over tens of thousands of birds, animals, plants and insect species of the forests. We will be a voice for the voiceless, collect tons of garbage from our oceans coastlines, and relentlessly educate our youth of the importance of sustainability and slowing global warming.
Working with Law Enforcement
Some of House On Fire’s most successful campaigns will be conducted in cooperation with international law enforcement agencies such as INTERPOL. We also regularly assist nations who are lacking the resources to defend their own forests from IUU deforestation , such as Central and South America, and protecting turtle sanctuaries from poachers in Costa Rica.
Land-Based and National Campaigns
House On Fire coordinates some of our most famous campaigns on the rainforests. We will remain a grassroots movement, with many more national campaigns conducted locally by House On Fire groups in Australia, New Zealand, France, the UK, Belgium, Costa Rica, Finland and Italy. Around the world, our volunteers participate in land-based campaigns to clean up debris on beaches, protect forests habitats, and educate the public about House On Fire’s mission.
Grassroots Resources, Global Impact
Unlike many other well-known international conservation groups, House On Fire is a grassroots movement run entirely by dedicated, passionate volunteers, not a bureaucratic organization with corporate offices and a well-staffed fundraising department. In fact, House On Fire has zero paid staff, and our CEO – who started out as a rock and roll drummer– still answers his own email. That’s why we’re able to make such a global impact in forest conservation with just a fraction of the budget of other groups. Our loyal supporters know that we put all of our resources – time and money – into our direct action campaigns, not into billboards, fancy office stationery and salaries. Television may make House On Fire a household name, but we still walk our talk.
Our Productions and Events are Plant-Based
House On Fire is an anti-poaching organization that campaigns against illegal, unreported, and unregulated hunting, deforestation as well as other environmental crimes. House On Fire productions and events will also be plant-based, as House On Fire opposes destructive agricultural practices and recognizes that an animal protein diet among Western consumers is one of the top four contributors to climate change.
