Amazonian Quilombola communities are at risk as unsustainable activities are invading their land... It's urgent to support their regenerative activities - as they support our global climate! Native stingless bees can be key! They support pollination, food sovereignty and traditional communities' culture. Quilombola's wisdom on how to live and preserve the forest is of immense value! The communities are very connected with their environment. Bees, honey and pollen are a part of their culture.
Crimes against the environment are combined with crimes against the human rights of traditional communities in the Amazon. They are losing their land and the world is losing it's most biodiverse forest. The primary pollinators of this flora are the first ones to disappear - and with them, the traditional community culture is also affected. Their food sovereignty is lost with the decrease of pollination and of their access to nutritional and medicinal value products, such as pollen and propolis.
We build a network to support traditional communities. We deliver the needed technical knowledge and build native "beehouses" to establish the sustainable management of native bees as well to support the wild native bees and the Citizen Science to monitore and study them, made by the Quilombola traditional community.
We bring a space for people to be connected in the long-term and find the best solutions for the most endangered areas of the Amazon.
