ABOUT

IRACAMBI

Iracambi is a community of people across the world whose vision is to see the Atlantic Forest restored, with thriving communities living in a flourishing landscape. At our headquarters in Minas Gerais, the Iracambi Research Center, a division of our non-profit Amigos de Iracambi, spearheads our work in managing natural resources, educating for sustainability and researching ecosystems and how we impact them.

The Iracambi logo shows what we are all about. The Brazilian story goes that the forest is on fire and all the animals are fleeing to safety. All except for the humming bird who is flying towards the fire with a drop of water in her beak. “Silly little bird,” says the eagle as he looks down at her. “Don’t you realize that you’ll never put the fire out all by yourself?”

“You’re right,” says the humming bird. “I know I can’t do it by myself. But I’m doing my part.”

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!
