We would like to express our deep gratitude for your donation to the program. Your generosity has been essential in driving our efforts to conserve and restore forests.
We thrilled to share some exciting news with you. We are honored to have the presence of an incredible researcher who is currently studying in Italy, at the University of Bologna. She is conducting a groundbreaking study within the breathtaking landscape that we have nearby Iracambi, focusing on the incidence and presence of various animals in different types of forests: primary forests, natural regeneration forests, and planted forests.
This exploratory study holds tremendous importance in understanding the interaction between animals and different forest ecosystems. The researcher is conducting meticulous observations, collecting valuable data on biodiversity, and analyzing the impacts of distinct forest conditions on animal presence and behavior.
In just one month, she will conclude this pioneering research, which will open many doors for us. The results of this study will allow us to better understand the importance of conserving native forests, the process of natural regeneration, and the benefits of planted forests. These findings will serve as a crucial guide to shape our future actions in restoration and conservation.
All of this is made possible thanks to your ongoing support and generosity. Your donation has a direct impact on our work, enabling us to conduct cutting-edge research and implement effective actions in forest protection. Your commitment to our cause is an inspiration to everyone involved in the Forests for Water program.
We look forward to sharing the results of this study with you soon. Once again, thank you for your generosity and belief in our mission. Together, we can create a more sustainable future and preserve the natural treasures for future generations.

We are super excited to share with you about a new planting method that we are testing here in Iracambi: the muvuca.
"Muvuca" is an indigenous word that means "mixture" or "blend".
The muvuca is a planting technique that involves mixing several seeds in the same place, without any kind of ordering. This technique is known for its high species diversity and for being a more sustainable and economical alternative to conventional planting.
In addition, the muvuca has the advantage of providing quick vegetation cover, thus reducing soil erosion.
We are very excited to test this new planting method and see how it can be applied in our reforestation projects. We hope to achieve good results and contribute to the promotion of biodiversity in the region.
We hope you are as excited as we are and we can't wait to share more news soon! Stay tuned!

We hope this letter finds you well. It is with immense gratitude that we write this report to express our deep appreciation for the generous support we received during the "Little by Little" campaign for the preservation of the Atlantic Rainforest. Thanks to your valuable contribution, we have achieved significant results in protecting this rich and diverse region.
It's been a difficult time for the Atlantic Rainforest and the communities that depend on it. As you may have heard, the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies recently approved a Provisional Measure that threatens the forest and the rights of indigenous and traditional communities. It's disheartening to see these terrible things happening in politics.
That's why the work we're doing with the Forests for Water is so important. We've been fully operational and actively pursuing our objectives, carrying out various activities in different areas of the Graminha da Montanha community over the last couple of months.
Our team has been working hard to provide guidance and follow-up in the planting zones, helping with selective clearing and weed removal to conserve the newly planted trees. We've also been closely monitoring the areas undergoing forest restoration, and recently held a team meeting to plan and discuss the next steps.
All of these efforts are vital to ensure the preservation of the forest restoration areas and the continuation of the environmental recovery process. Through our guidance and follow-up activities, rural landowners gain access to practical and technical knowledge that contributes to the maintenance and care of green spaces.
Despite the challenges we face, we remain committed to our work and believe that change is possible. Thank you for your continued support.

Dear forestry friends!
Recently, Iracambi partnered with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) to restore 5 hectares of land in the Atlantic Forest region. The project aims to plant thousands of native tree species, restore degraded areas, and create corridors for wildlife movement.
To monitor the reforestation progress, Iracambi is using drones to film the area. The footage captured by the drones is then analyzed to track the growth of trees, identify areas that require further attention, and assess the impact of the project on the local environment. The use of drones allows for efficient monitoring and helps the team make informed decisions about the reforestation process.
The successful restoration of 5 hectares of land is just the beginning of the project, as Iracambi plans to restore more land in the future. The partnership with TNC has been a crucial step towards achieving this goal, and the use of technology such as drones is making the process more effective and sustainable. With continued efforts, Iracambi hopes to contribute towards a greener and healthier planet for all.
We keep counting on you all to help us throught it as well!

Dear fellow environmentalists,
First of all, we want to thank you for your support to our forestry program. Together we really are making a difference!
As the March rains bring our summer to a close, we have completed our 2023-22 tree planting goal of 55,000 trees. And we couldn’t have done it without your support, and the hard work of our team. We’re really excited to have hit our target, and it’s an important contribution towards the conservation of biodiversity in our region.
And here’s some more exciting news for you:
After years of downgrading the public sector and weakening environmental policies during the previous administration, the new Lula government is committed to rebuilding sound climate policies! The goal is to achieve net zero deforestation by 2030, not only in the Amazon but across all the biomes in Brazil.
As a megadiversity country, Brazil has a special responsibility to protect its extraordinary biodiversity, and we at Iracambi will be doing what we can, not only to play our part, but also to hold the government accountable for delivering on its promises.
Let's see where that leads us!
