NEWSFLASH! New York loves Junior Scientists!

Hard at work!

NEWSFLASH!!! 

Junior Scientists has been selected by CA Technologies from New York City as one of the four projects they are supporting to celebrate their 50th anniversary. How exciting is that?! 

So it's easier than ever to support Junior Scientists. Three clicks and it's done! Just follow the link http://www.ca.com/us/lpg/mainframe/mainframe-50/giving.aspx, select Iracambi, go down the page, hit the like button, hit submit and CA Technologies will donate $1 for our Junior Scientists. And better still, you can do it every day.   

And in case you are wondering what our Junior Scientists are up to.... well, this past weekend they helped plant nearly 400 trees on the new Graminha Forest Reserve. And they are planning to plant more next weekend. This is all part of taking their practical skills into the field in preparation for going into the environmental preservation areas and working with the local community to preserve streams and springs and prevent erosion through planting and caring for forest seedlings. We were extraordinarily lucky in the weather - it had been very hot and dry for the previous ten days, and there was a violent thunderstorm the day before which flooded the valley, knocked out the power, and burned out the radios that bring us the internet. The track up to the planting site is steep and muddy, but luckily the Junior Scientists were to hand to push when the Iracambi Land Rover got stuck!

We'll send you an update when school starts again next month, and in the meantime if you could help us with three clicks (and if you could do it every day) we'll be overjoyed!
