Dear donors and project friends,

Project “Trees and Education Protect Rainforest in Brazil” continues to take students to visit the Concordia Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary and to participate of the environmental education course “A Day in the Forest”. It is always a pleasure for us to offer these unique forest trekking that takes students out of their classrooms and gives them and their teachers a wonderful possibility to see Nature closely visiting a protected forest and also the agro-forestry demonstration areas. For most of these students it is the first time they visit a forest and it is for sure an unforgettable experience. After this day in the woods they will have a much better understanding of the environment and of the urgent need to keep these areas preserved in order to maintain the water sources and some important specimens of Brazilian wildlife.

Please see pictures of these schools here:

Thank you again and all the best,

Roberto Lamego
