The forest for the trees: Environmental education in Tumucumaque
Education contributes to conservation of Ecosia’s beneficiary national park
Conserving Brazil’s rainforests is no simple task. Realistic, effective and sustainable solutions require a deep understanding of the issues first. Human politics, economics and culture all have profound influence over the survival of these unique biospheres - and while there seems to be no quick-fix answer, many contend that it is best to start at the beginning. WWF-Brazil did just that with its one-of-a-kind educational program geared at teachers in communities in and near protected areas (PA). Ligia Paes de Barros explains the details of the Ecosia-supported program.
Into the wild: Montanhas do Tumucumaque National Park
WWF-Brazil teamed up with ICMBio this September to explore the Amazonian roads and rivers of the Montanhas do Tumucumaque National Park. The group travelled more than 1,500 kilometers to visit communities near the region. Following is Part One of a multi-leg report on this week-long expedition through Ecosia’s beneficiary region, the Tumucumaque Conservation Landscape.
