21 YEARS DOING OUR PART

SAVING FORESTS AND CHANGING LIVES

At Iracambi we’re committed to bringing the rainforest back to life: And, as soon as it is safe to do so, we look forward to welcoming local schoolchildren back to our forest trails. Thank you for being such a valued part of the Iracambi family!  

FAQs

The cost of planting and maintaining one rainforest tree for two years is US$3.55. This  breaks down as 53% local salaries, 19% tree seedlings, 14% forest nursery costs, 8% transport 4% administrative costs and 2% contingencies.

Our programs are supported by individual donations, foundations and corporate partners, and we are now investigating the possibility of selling carbon offsets.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting our page and we want to give you a big SHOUTOUT for your amazing support to us in 2021!! 

Thanks to you, we’ve raised our reforestation goal to 55,000 trees by the end of 2022 and one million trees by the end of the decade.  

Thanks to you, we’ve graduated over one hundred environmental leaders from our online education programs. Leaders across Brazil who are making change in their communities.

Thanks to you, we´ve set up 10 community forest nurseries and tripled the capacity in the Iracambi tree nursery. 

Thanks to you,we’ve expanded our team and acquired a range of new skills: learning better techniques of environmental restoration and monitoring, setting up and managing online courses, inventorying medicinal plants and improving our communications and fundraising skills.  

Thanks to amazing volunteers from across the world, we’ve created a corporate brochure, learned about the potential of carbon financing and made fourteen new partnerships with universities, foundations, corporations and an investment fund. 

So, as we head towards 2022, we plan to reopen our doors to international students and volunteers, host local schoolchildren on our rainforest campus, and plant LOTS of trees. 

We couldn’t have done any of this without you! 

Thank you, and stay safe. Better times are on the way.

with love and appreciation from Binka and the Iracambi team
