Project Report | Jun 2, 2021
Forests4Water team back in the classroom....

Monitoring forest growth
Monitoring forest growth

Good afternoon, dear donors, 

And we hope you are doing well?

In our last letter we took you behind the scenes to show you a little of the nuts and bolts of our forestry program. And today we'd like to tell you what's been happening as the Forests4Water team goes back to the classroom - for a few hours at least! 

Thanks to the generosity of all our wonderful donors, (including you,) as well as the wise counsel of our forestry mentor Venkat, the hard work of our forestry team here at Iracambi, and the opportunity to devote a few hours to expanding our knowledge, our program is growing and improving by leaps and bounds, and we are learning more every day.

As you know, our forestry program involves activities year-round, but from time to time it´s important for us to take time out from work in the nursery and in the field, trade tips and learn from our colleagues in the reforestry world. So yesterday we joined a super interesting workshop given the the Atlantic Forest Restoration Pact on using GIS, drones and drone-mounted techniques for forest monitoring. We emerged with our heads spinning, and burning to try our hands at some of the techniques they shared with us. 

In parallel, and during a week when three of the world´s major oil companies have found themselves faced with the necessity of taking a serious stand in terms of curbing emissions, we´re learning all we can about the carbon market, under the guidance of a pro bono consultancy, along with a couple of long -time friends and mentors with vast experience in the field.

And just to complete our happiness, we are today starting a search for a new addition to our forestry team: specifically someone who can manage our data collection and analysis, assist our GIS manager in producing maps and reports, and collaborate with the team in the forest nursery and in the field.

So that´s the news from Iracambi, and we hope you are enjoying our updates on the amazing things that your support is making possible.

Thank you!

Look after yourselves, and we´ll talk soon,

with love from the soon-to-be-expanded forestry team at Iracambi!
