ABOUT

IRACAMBI

Iracambi is a community of people around the world whose vision is to see the beautiful Brazilian Atlantic Forest restored, with prosperous communities living in a flourishing landscape. In our headquarters in Minas Gerais, the Iracambi Research Center spearheads our work in managing natural resources, educating for sustainability, and researching ecosystems and how we impact them.

The Iracambi logo explains what we are about. The indigenous story tells that the forest is on fire, and all the animals are fleeing to safety. All except the humming bird. She is flying towards the fire with a drop of water in her beak. “Silly little bird,” shouts the eagle, looking down at her. “Don’t you see that you’ll never put out the fire all by yourself?”

“You’re right,” says the humming bird. “I’ll  never put it out all by myself. But I’m doing my part.”

Here at Iracambi we’ve been doing our part since 1999, and with your help we’ll be here as long as it takes. Come join us, and be part of the change!
