We urgently need your help!
The 2022 CITES pernambuco decision was not permanent. CITES listed specific actions requiring a concerted effort by the entire musical community. Our progress will be reviewed and a decision will be made in 2 years. The future use of pernambuco for professional bow making depends on shops, makers, and musicians working together to support conservation.
The Alliance is focusing on:
- Educating musicians about the need for conservation
- Increasing funding for scientific research and reforestation (specified musician involvement)
- Assisting musicians and shops in authenticating the materials used in bows
Here’s how you can help:
Download the digital sticker for your website and social media
Help raise awareness that immediate action is needed for pernambuco. Show your website and social media followers that you are committed to conservation.
Purchase physical stickers

comments by participants:
“I raised prices $1 for the Alliance and mention to customers that with every sale I donate $1 to conservation. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. They love the stickers and love that their purchases are helping contribute to conservation”.
