- Seizures of illegal equipment: In 2018, ForestLink alerts triggered the seizure of £1.5 million worth of illegal mining equipment in Madre de Dios. Overall, 195 pieces of mining equipment have been seized and 23 illegal gold mining camps have been dismantled due to the efforts of communities in Madre de Dios.
- Pursuing legal recourses to justice: The advocacy efforts of ForestLink communities and FENAMAD led to six legal complaints being filed with the office of the Public Prosecutor in Peru. The regional forestry authority complied with the communities’ request to set up a Forestry Vigilance and Control roundtable to listen to community concerns.
- Documenting illegalities of forest concession holders: ForestLink observers have documented encroachment by neighbouring concession-holders on indigenous territories, and supported legal cases whereby communities have reasserted their territorial boundaries.
- Adapting ForestLink technology to fight the pandemic: During the COVID-19 outbreak, ForestLink was adapted to allow communities to report outbreaks of the virus in their community via the application, allowing them to communicate their need for support with FENAMAD.
