What real actions can we do to help save the Amazon?

What should we know in order to make a difference?

The Special Amazon is a series of posts, that we have first explained the Brazilian Amazon in numbers, pointing out that we cannot ignore our responsibility over the largest rainforest in the World and continued explaining about the 7 main threats to the Amazon and which are the industries behind its deforestation. Then we brought out some examples and experiences about serious projects and NGOs that struggle to keep their projects running for the children´s education and generating local jobs in remote areas.  

In this post, we raise 3 real actions that are within our capabilities to start helping and caring for the Amazon today! But be sure to read the previous posts to better understand the importance of the actions outlined below.

– Buy products and crafts from the communities. There are several foods and handicrafts that are produced and generates jobs and income in remote regions of the Amazon. Supporting the purchase of these products is critical so that families do not have to work in illegal activities. Some examples are the Baniwa indigenous pepper, Yanomami mushrooms, Nakau-branded chocolates that bring together organic cocoa producers, Unini River brazilian nuts from the communities of the Jaú National Park, the rubber tree latex crafts from the communities of Tapajós River and biojewels and objects made with native wood, among many other quality products that need your support to offer conditions of economic sustainability and cultural appreciation of the Amazon communities.

– Support serious projects and NGOs that address causes you believe in. As the examples mentioned, the VivAmazônia School, which acts directly in the education of riverside children and the Almerinda Malaquias Foundation, which works in the environmental education of children and by creating jobs for adults with handicrafts, are supported by the Mirante do Gavião Amazon Lodge, in Novo Airão, 180km from Manaus. But there are many other serious projects that are conducted in the Amazon that need donations to keep changing lifes.

Travel to the Amazon! Gather your family and friends, make an unforgettable boat expedition. Know the local reality and contribute to the generation of jobs and income that tourism provides. According to Professor Ralf Buckley, from Griffith University, Australia, author of several books on ecotourism in the world, “tourism does not yet have the economic scale or political power to replace mass deforestation, which is the reason for the fires in the Amazon. But, once established, tourism is much larger than the timber extraction, agriculture or mining industry in terms of economic scale and job creation. ” Tourism drives a series of direct and indirect activities that generate various jobs, from transportation, hospitality, restaurants, to native guides and receiving visitors in the communities. When you travel to the Amazon, you contribute to each family that depends on this income and come back full of stories about this special place on our planet!

So when you ask yourself what can you do to help save the world’s largest rainforest, so that it continues to play its part in climate regulation on our planet and so that more and more researchers can find answers and scientific knowledge, keep in mind these three actions for the creation of jobs in the communities, bringing better living conditions and alternatives to the illegal jobs that are always knocking at the door of the young people from the Amazon.

Who are the people and the projects that are already making a difference in the Amazon?

What are their needs and how can we support them?

We have first explained about the Brazilian Amazon in numbers in our first post of this Special Amazon series and pointed out that we cannot ignore our responsibility over the largest rainforest in the World and continued by explaining the 7 main threats to the Amazon and which are the industries behind the deforestation purposes. In this post we will talk about the people that are actually working for the communities and the forest, the serious projects and NGOs that struggle to make a difference and support social and environmental protection.

Brazil is among the countries that mostly kills environmentalists and activists in the world, according to the NGO Global Witness. In a scenario where the great leaders of agribusiness, mining and mega-dams are the opposition, who risks rising and fighting for traditional peoples and the forest? Sustainable development projects in riverside communities are true epics. Carried out by amazing people who gave up their lives in comfortable cities to help and carry out projects in remote, hostile and precarious regions of the Amazon. 

In Brazilian nut production initiatives, for example, planning requires from tree management to the concentration of extraction in an industry capable of processing the nut, packing and shipping it to the consuming centers. Industrial process, logistics, marketing, sales and management. A distant vocabulary from riverside communities and necessary for the development of a sustainable extractive solution, but a path with economic potential and in
many cases even superior to predatory exploitation. For example, comparing extraction of açai with soy, according to Professor Raoni Rajão of UFMG (Minas Gerais Federal University), the productive capacity of açai per hectare is around R$ 26,000 while soybean is less than R$3,000.

If a single fruit from the Amazon is today one of the world’s most famous sports foods and valued for its nutritional quality, how many others are there to be discovered? Do we really rather support the monoculture that burns the forest and contaminates rivers with pesticides to
exist? It is time to encourage our researchers, value sustainable products and generate economic income with the forest standing.

When I first decided to go to the Amazon there was a universe of expectations within me. The harsh reality of the conditions of the communities gradually hit me as I had the opportunity to move deeper and deeper into the remote regions of the Negro River. My gaze soon stopped on a couple who left a comfortable life in Europe to offer study conditions for riverine children. What many people around the world and even Brazilians do not know is that schools in these regions offer multi-grade education (all ages in the same class with the same teacher) and only until the fourth grade, around 11 years old. Those who continue their studies are children sent to relatives’ homes in the cities, often in precarious situations, vulnerable to abuse and child labor.

This European couple has felt a calling, what we feel when our mission is presented and we know that we cannot change the world alone, but we can change some people’s lives and that is enough. The VivAmazônia School in the Gaspar community, celebrates nearly 20 years of child-rearing work through the eighth grade, in a region accessible only by 2 days by boat.

I also had the opportunity to meet another European who married an Amazonian and with the support of friends from Switzerland created the Almerinda Malaquias Foundation, which offers working conditions through the production of reused wood crafts from local shipbuilding for adults and environmental education for children. Promoting sustainable activities and encouraging alternative crafts to illegal work as the best way to provide conditions for Amazonian communities to subsist with the forest standing.

Within the activities that can help save the Amazon from its threats, it is necessary to consider that many communities live in fully protected conservation units. Unlike the sustainable use units, which allow family farming and other sustainable extractive activities, the more restricted units have in the production of handicrafts and tourism their main economic sources.

Given this scenario, what can we do for the Amazon? Continue to read other information about the Brazilian Amazon in our Special Amazon with 3 other posts about: the Brazilian Amazon in numbers, the 7 main threats to the Amazon and what can we do to help save the Amazon.

Which are the industries behind the Amazon deforestation?

Which are the ilegal activities that generate incomes by putting down the forest?

Which are the ilegal jobs that attracts young people from the Amazon?  

We have first explained about the Brazilian Amazon in numbers in our first post of this Special Amazon series and pointed out that we cannot ignore our responsibility over the largest rainforest in the World, that has the biggest river basin and fresh water supply of our Planet and a great participation over climate changes.

In this post we will point out the 7 main threats to the Amazon nowadays and clarify which industries are behind the deforestation purposes:

– Cattle raising: responsible for almost 70% of deforestation, pastures (mostly with low productivity) are the biggest threat. We are destroying the Amazon to turn it into cattle pasture;

– Agribusiness: based on the harmful principles of large landowners, machinery (opposite to job creation), pesticides (hundreds of them already banned in other countries), transgenics and extensive monocultures such as soy. Small producers in Brazil are responsible for 70% of the population’s food production, while agribusiness is dedicated to monoculture in the production of grains that feed national and international cattle;

– Mining: The existence of valuable minerals such as iron ore, aluminum, copper, gold, manganese, kaolin, tin and gas transform the forest into large deforested holes, in addition to contaminating rivers and soil with minerals used for mineral extraction;

– Mega hydroelectric: the famous projects that promise to bring the energy needed for the development of the country, without really accounting for the social and environmental damages. The displacement of populations from their traditional territories (without due compensation and relocations), the flooding of huge areas of forest, which means the loss of habitat for species of fauna and flora, the disappearance of fish that can no longer migrate and
that sustain whole communities, the profound changes in the microclimate (temperature, humidity, drought and forced flooding to maintain the dam´s water levels), as well as the enormous social pressures that relocating thousands of man-workers to small towns causes;

– Timber extraction: Deforestation generally means loss of species habitat and ecosystem imbalance, as well as the extraction of scarce trees that take a long time to grow without respecting the natural capacity of the forest to recover;

– Biopiracy, wild animal trafficking and illegal hunting: Wild animal trafficking is the third most illegal money-moving activity in the world (only after drugs and weapons) and Brazil is one of the main targets, with fish, birds, insects, mammals, reptiles and other animals from the Amazon fauna illegally traded. Biopiracy, misappropriation of fauna and flora resources, such as international patents of indigenous traditional knowledge or the manipulation of Amazonian seeds, are also threats, such as the rubber tree seeds that were smuggled by England in 1876 to produce latex in Malaysia at a lower cost, breaking the Brazilian rubber production industry;

– Irregular occupation and roads: For all of the above reasons, a huge population moves to remote regions and is forced to engage in illegal practices for their livelihoods, resulting in the opening of illegal roads and irregular occupations with poor living conditions and violence.

According to indigenous leader Ailton Krenak “with the context of climate change on the planet, the co-responsibility of peoples, including indigenous peoples, is to diminish the intensity of activities in regions where ecology has the regulating role of the planetary climate, which is the Amazon, and other regions where indigenous peoples guard different territories”. However, with a new federal government determined to dismantle the already weakened environmental public policies in Brazil, the scenario is increasingly disapointing.

Given this scenario, what can we do for the Amazon?

How much fresh water does the biggest river basin in the World have?

How much has been already deforestated?

How many people live in the Amazon?

How much of the forest is protected?

The largest rainforest and the world’s largest river basin are just two of the many superlatives that the Amazon represents. To get a perspective of ​​the volume of water that we are talking about, every day, the Amazon River discharges in the Atlantic Ocean an amount of fresh water capable of supplying New York City for 9 years! When I came across this data I thought it was an overstatement, but anyone who has seen the water levels of the Negro River (main tributary of the Amazon River) in the dry and flood seasons, can say that this world of water and forest is real. The Amazon encompasses nine countries in South America, among which Brazil has the largest share and 61% of the country is comprised of the Amazon biome.

  

The Brazilian Amazon encompasses nine states of the country, with 25 million inhabitants. The indigenous communities in Brazil are a total of 900 thousand people, considering IBGE´s (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics) data from 2010. There are 305 ethnicities of indigenous communities and 274 native languages. Over 50% of them live inside Indigenous Territories, which are considered the most protected areas of the forest among all kinds of conservation units, according to recent studies, while the Amazon has lost around 20% of the forest, all Indigenous Territories have lost only 1,9%.

 

Also real are the threats to this biome and to the traditional peoples. In the words of the researcher João Meirelles Filho: “the Amazon biome would be like a planet’s air conditioning”, a  regulation of air and water, dependent on the entire ecological balance of the ecosystem, water flows and the entire fauna and flora chain, much existing only there. With all this power, the Amazon faces many attempts to destroy it, standing with its head high, peaceful and quiet, at the same time hostile and wild. Even with its losses, still hoping that men will find the best ways to live wisely, taking what the forest offers without burning it down.

 IMAZON, 2010

 

The Amazon Protected Areas Program (ARPA), launched by the federal government in 2002 with the support of international institutions, plays a major role in improving the deforestation scenario in the Amazon. Although data show even higher peaks in deforestation in 2003 and 2004, major advances were made until the Brazilian Forest Code was amended in 2012, mega-dams projects like Belo Monte and constant incentives for agribusiness show that the paths are not following in the direction of conservation nowadays. 

 ARPA, 2017

 

 Deforestation has reached more than 76 million hectares in the last 40 years, which is around 20% of the forest and the equivalent of the countries of Germany, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Austria and Switzerland combined and as we drink a cup of coffee or read this article, more forest is being burned down. According to INPE (National Institute for Space Research), between 2017 and 2018 the highest level of deforestation of the last 10 years was reached, with more than 7,900 km² of deforestation, but the first eight months of 2019 registered an increase of 92% compared to the same period of 2018, which indicates the acceleration and growth of deforestation that should go in the opposite direction. Although, in absolute terms, the Amazon has large protected areas, representing 43% of its territory, in practice the management of these protected areas and the effectiveness of their protection role are greatly hampered by the scarce resources of the management bodies and the pressures of illegal threats upon these territories.

 

 Given this scenario, what can we do for the Amazon?

5 best tips to plan your trip to a National Park in Brazil http://gogreenbrazil.com/5-best-tips-to-plan-your-trip-to-a-national-park-in-brazil/ http://gogreenbrazil.com/5-best-tips-to-plan-your-trip-to-a-national-park-in-brazil/#respond Wed, 22 May 2019 16:06:40 +0000 http://gogreenbrazil.com/?p=210765 O post 5 best tips to plan your trip to a National Park in Brazil apareceu primeiro em Go Green Brazil.

]]>

Many people ask us why is it so hard to plan a trip to Brazil, especially to National Parks. First of all, I would like to highlight some of the difficulties of planning and travelling in Brazil, so we can map where we need solutions and then get to the point.

1 – Brazil is too big, so logistics is the number one concern.

Brazil has almost the same size as Europe! Imagine planning to start your trip in Berlin, then head to Lisbon, then a couple of days in London and finish in Rome. That´s how a trip in Brazil may look like when you go for famous attractions and don´t understand logistics and distances inside the country.

Unfortunately, Brazil doesn´t connect the country with trains as Europeans are used to and flight connections are not prepared for the tourism in National Parks, which usually are far from the main capital´s airports. Sometimes schedules doesn´t allow you to connect two destinations in a single day and low-cost fares are quite not that low as well.

As distances are far, costs with transportation are the highest concern when planning a trip to National Parks in Brazil. Not only to get to the destinations, but also to get around to the attractions. Cars, boats and fuel are very expensive in Brazil, so take into consideration that the travel agencies have to face those costs in order to provide good cars, boat experiences and take you to the best hidden places.

Tip 1: Get familiar with the country´s map. Understand, for example, what kind of transportation is available for the trip you are planning and how far southeast (where Rio is) is from north (where the Amazon is) – that is over 4.000km.

2 – Make sure you match your expectations with the right destinations.

Brazil has a lot to offer. When we say that, something very particular pops up in every person´s mind. For Go Green Brazil, we are focused in exploring National Parks to see their nature and culture. But Brazil has a lot to offer in terms of beaches to rest and for romantic trips or lively cities for night-life and traditional tourism to main attractions. Make sure you know which kind of experience you are willing to get, in order to decide the destinations that best fits you.

Among the National Parks, a second thought has to be made according to the activities you are most interested in. If you are a long-term trekking lover, if you are into the Amazon and the indigenous communities’ kind of trip, or a jungle survival, if you are looking for stunning mountains landscapes or to see wildlife.

 Tip 2: Read carefully about every destination briefing, so you can decide which are the experiences you are looking for and from that, design your logistics in the country.

 

3 – Brazil is not very well prepared for international tourists. Be prepared to handle basics in Portuguese.

As a country that doesn´t rely on tourism as a powerful industry, Brazil still has little field for international visitors to be encouraged to travel in the countryside. US Dollars are usually not accepted anywhere, bank cashiers can be hard to find in some small cities and someone speaking English can be rare, even in hotels and local travel agencies.

 Maybe the worst part for foreigners is to not have enough information in English in road plates and at bus stations, for example. When you need to find somewhere, make sure you have enough surrounding information, such as an important reference place close to your hotel. If you need to ask for information, people will know if they recognize a supermarket name or a main touristic attraction.

 Tip 3: Be prepared with, at least, basic questions in Portuguese so you can look for information when necessary.

 

4 – Safety.

This may be the greatest concern of every visitor when travelling to Brazil. We are used to see a lot of news about violence in Rio and Brazil in general, which can make us think that this is a dangerous place to visit. However, violence in Brazil is much more related to a poverty situation and robbery, rather than to killing and attempts against people´s life. Visiting touristic attractions, staying in good locations and hiring trustful companies, is far from where violence usually takes place. For this matter, always look for the registered travel agencies, with trustful websites and insurance.

 Tip 4: Choose trustful companies to rely your money for touristic services and book hotels with good location reviews. Avoid buying services that are offered to you in the streets.

 

5 – Best time to visit.

Brazil has very different weather conditions, but in general very pleasant and sunny. The country has 4 different time zones and 6 kinds of biomes, from rainforests to dry mountains, fields and the largest wetlands in the World.

 Rain season in generally during summer (December to Feb) in most parts of Brazil, but many destinations are available the whole year, such as Rio, Iguaçu Falls, Chapada Diamantina and the Amazon. Others like Chapada dos Guimarães & Pantanal and Chapada dos Veadeiros are recommended only during dry season (May to September).

 The important issue is to notice if the best times in different destinations match, so you can plan and include many destinations in a single trip to Brazil. When making good logistics and combining the best seasons, a great trip to Brazil can have 15 days and 3 destinations in a remarkable experience!

 Tip 5: Check the best seasons of every destination here.

 

For all those reasons, getting a reliable Travel Agency to plan your trip to Brazil is a very good option. You don´t waste your time in a lot of research and have a safe trip, making sure that you are going to have the experiences that best fits your expectations.

Fumaça Waterfall among the highest waterfalls in Brazil, the first accessible in a single day hike http://gogreenbrazil.com/fumaca-waterfall-among-highest-waterfalls-brazil/ http://gogreenbrazil.com/fumaca-waterfall-among-highest-waterfalls-brazil/#respond Wed, 22 May 2019 15:53:13 +0000 http://gogreenbrazil.com/?p=210758 O post Fumaça Waterfall among the highest waterfalls in Brazil, the first accessible in a single day hike apareceu primeiro em Go Green Brazil.

Many doubts hang over which is the highest waterfall in Brazil. This is due, in large part, to the difficulty in accessing giant waterfalls. As few people have been in these places, it is difficult to prove and guarantee exactly which is the waterfall that can take the title of highest of the country. But at one point, most researchers in the area agree: accessible in just a single day hike, Cachoeira da Fumaça, in Chapada Diamantina National Park, takes the title of highest with better access!

The 3 largest falls in the world compete in different categories: water volume, height and extension. The Niagara Falls (considering both sides: Canadian and North American) has 930m in length and about 35 to 57m in height, with the largest volume of water in its falls. Meanwhile, Victoria Falls, on the border of African countries Zambia and Zimbabwe, is the highest in the world with 128m in height and 1,500m in length. Iguaçu Falls, on the border of Brazil and Argentina, has the title of more extensive, with 275 waterfalls, 2,700m in length and about 60 to 82m in height.

The issue of the highest waterfall in Brazil revolves around El Dorado, the massive waterfall with a large volume of water and an unique fall located at Serra do Aracá, in the state of Amazonas, in the tepuis of the western Amazon and near Monte Roraima and Pico da Neblina. This giant waterfall is registered with 353m height and accessible only on a wild expedition of 10 days, with 6 days by boat and 4 days of trekking in dense and closed rainforest. Those who have already been there said that the spectacle is indescribable, the volume of water is really intense, the surroundings of untouched Amazon forest and the abyss spiked in the high mountains complete the magic of the lost treasure.

El Dorado recently lost its number 1 position when researchers discovered a giant waterfall in the Serra dos Órgãos National Park, in the highlands of Rio de Janeiro state. The 10 days expedition, with high technical level of mountaineering, revealed the Neblina Waterfall. The discovery, by the group of scholars during research on the region’s water basin, records that the waterfall is more than 450m high! But to get there, only with the experience of high-performance athletes and mountaineers.

According to the updated ranking of the highest waterfalls in Brazil, the Giant Waterfalls Project, two other waterfalls located in Monte Roraima / RR are larger than El Dorado and smaller than the Neblina. The north and south waterfalls of the Cotingo River are 375m and 365m high respectively. But besides being less famous, they also have very difficult access and complex logistics. Then we get to our beloved Fumaça Waterfall in the Chapada Diamantina National Park! That does not hide from the visitors who wish to know its beauty and the dance in the walls of the canyons that embraces it. Its 340m of free fall offers true spectacles in the different seasons of the year, either with a high volume of water (after the rains) or when its volume is just a fillet, that vaporizes through the valley before reaching the bottom, creating the famous curtain of Smoke – and that´s the translate name: Smoke Waterfall!

The hike to Fumaça Waterfall can therefore be considered the most accessible among the giant waterfalls in Brazil. Reached in just a single day hiking, a 12km (round trip) to reach the top and enjoy the abyss and the panoramic view of the mountains. Other trails can also be carried out around the Fumaça Waterfall, such as the Lençois walk through the river bed to the well, or the exit through the Capão Valley towards Lençois, a wild trekking of 36km, carried out in 3 days. Make sure you know the highest waterfall with the best access in Brazil! Come to Chapada Diamantina and enjoy many other amazing waterfalls in the National Park!
