Dear wonderful donors!

We already told you that a lot of changes have been happening around here… and this is the time to show you:

Our team had a really great course these past few weeks, where they’ve learned A LOT about the nursery, other ways to plant the different types of plants and trees, turning a part of our nursery in a laboratory where we can do experiments with them, to see how they will adapt and grow!

They’ve also learned how to take care of our baby trees and seedlings and how to build a greenhouse made with material that we have in our property, as you can see in the pictures.

With rainforest love from the Iracambi team

PS: We also have to THANK YOU ALL that voted and shared the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) contest between your family and friends and helped us in the contest!

Hello there, dear environmentalists’ friends!

 

We have exciting news for you: Iracambi is on the short list of the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA), an organization that promotes the protection, conservation and restoration of threatened wild landscapes and habitats.

 

There are only 5 projects running for this category and if we are one of the most voted projects, we will receive financial support from EOCA to continue with our reforestation work which will allow the rainforests on the region of Serra do Brigadeiro State Park -home to one of the largest populations of endangered Woolly Spider Monkey - to be maintained and will hopefully increase the presence of the species in the region.

 

But we only have less than a ONE WEEK LEFT to vote for the project!

 

And it’s quite easy to help us: all you have to do is select the "Vote Now" button in the project "The Woolly Spider Monkey Forest, Brazil" and click on "Cast Your Vote"!

 

Ta-daaaam, your vote will be computed and you can also share the link with your friends, asking them to also vote for us!

 

Check the link: www.eocaconservation.org/project-voting-category.cfm?catid=5

 

 

PS: We count on you to help us by voting!

“So, let us not be blind to our differences but let us also direct attention to our common interests and the means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For in the final analysis,  our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal”.

This is John Kennedy’s famous quote that anticipates the reports we read today which tell us that worldwide, more than 1 million species of plants and animals are at risk of extinction.

Earth Day is coming soon, and it`s all about defending the environment and reflecting on  the importance of developing a consciousness of the environment and taking up the fight against climate change and its consequences.

So please invite your friends and family to join us during Earth Week and follow our social media where we’ll be highlighting a series of actions we can all take to help solve the problem!

We count on you to help the world!

 

With a hopeful heart, Juliana and the Iracambi team.

The brachiaria is so tall, we can't see the tree!
The brachiaria is so tall, we can't see the tree!

Hey there!

What you’ve been up to these past few days?

We hope you're doing good 'cause here we’ve been doing some maintenance in the areas we planted in the last three years and we can see the seedlings growing stronger and stronger every day.

Our job is to cut the brachiarias aside to allow our trees to grow and even thou this is one of the hardest works that we get to do, this is the perfect time to do so, because the brachiarias don’t have a significant growth at low temperatures and every day is getting colder and colder around here (and we can use the beautiful blue sky as a proof of it). You can check below to see our boys getting the work done: 

Since we're in the maintenance mood, we also want you all to see how beautiful our home is turning to be with the help of our incredible volunteers and staff.

With warms hugs from Juliana and the rainforest team.

 

PS: We're also participating in the Little by Little Campaign, that believes that every small action can add to big change and we proudly announce that our beloved educational project Young Eco Leaders was the chosen one since we're aiming to raise $7500 during the 4th until the 8th of April.

We also have to tell you that all donations up to $50 will be matched by 50%, so, we count on you to spread the word about it to your family and friends!

Dear donors,

Ahoy ahoy! We hope you are doing well! 

Here we are doing fine  after  a relaxing Mardi Gras in the forest  - working towards our new goal for this year! But first, we have to thank you for your generous ongoing support to Forests4Water Brazil: Community Climate Action!

Since we’re getting closer to the end of the wet season, we have to calm down and prepare ourselves for the next planting season. But for that, we have a lot of work to do, when it comes to collecting  and growing seeds, turning them into seedlings and doing the maintenance of the reforested areas, to take care of  our baby trees! 

You may even think that our goal couldn’t be higher than planting  20.000 trees.. But, you`d be  wrong, because, in the 2022/2023 season, we’re planning to plant more 35.000 seedlings!

We count on you to spread the word and help us achieve our crazy goal! And we´ll keep you posted. 

With warm hugs from the rainforest team.
