This year we have began to work on one of our most ambitious projects for Green Belt of Rio de Janeiro yet: the Recôncavo da Guanabara long distance trail! Its 100kms, crossing through several public and private conservation units.
The trail is a collective effort that aims to bring attention to the natural beauty and wealth of the Atlantic Rainforest surrounding Rio. Together with the local community, we seek to promote community-based ecotourism (such as camping sites and museums that recover the history of the region) and to develop a local economy based on entrepreneurship and the regeneration of forest biodiversity. Some possibilities are regional cuisine, guided trails and sports like paragliding. The name of the trail itself, refers to the 18th and 19th century historical name for the larger Guanabara region, bringing attention to important historical landmarks of the Baixada Verde, the periphery around Rio de Janeiro.
We are very grateful for our donors support, who help us restore our land and even go the extra mile, creating programs that enable other guardians of the forest to find ways to protect this critical area!
Stay tuned to our reports, we will be sharing photos and project updates!
