QUITO, ECUADOR -- (Marketwired) -- 06/14/13 -- BluForest Inc. (OTCBB: BLUF) (OTCQB: BLUF) -- The Paiter Suruí, Indigenous Amazonian People were the first indigenous people in the world to generate REDD+ credits.

According to an article on Stockwatch.com, four years ago, the indigenous people "voted to shift the basis of their economic livelihoods away from logging and other activities that require bulldozing the forest towards activities that conserve it."(1)

The Paiter Suruí utilized REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation, plus sustainable forest management) to earn credit for the carbon captured in trees. "Their success can now be replicated by other indigenous people, who have long been among the most effective stewards of the land and play a key role on the front lines of combatting climate change."(2)

"REDD+ is a mechanism that unites our values and those of the non-indigenous capitalist world," says Chief Almir Suruí, who conceived the project in 2007 and received assistance and guidance from a non-profit organization, Forest Trends. "This is our contribution to forest preservation, but projects like this can only be achieved by people with a medium- to long-term perspective."

Forest Trends President and CEO Michael Jenkins stated, "It's been a long and arduous journey... But by going first, the Suruí have created a template for other indigenous people across the Amazon."
