Welcome to our projects page. Here you will find links to more detailed information about each of the projects we have under way. But as hard as we try its sometimes difficult to keep this section update – so please see our Instagram Feed for the lastest activities.

Ecological Restoration

Our project work in Ecological Restoration is at present primarily focused on the restoration of native tree and shrub cover on the world famous beaches of Alter do Chão, and especially the Ilha do Amor (Island of Love). Click below to read more about this work.

* You can read about Alter do Chão’s world famous beaches in a 2009 Guardian article here.

We have also initiated ecological restoration work in conjunction with our work in Santarem’s  Plateau – read about this under Sustainability below.

Environmental Education

We see Environmental Education as one of the fundamental pillars for building a sustainable social and economic system, in harmony with the environment.

ACRAA created the “ACRAA nas Escolas” program, with the aim of promoting and stimulating environmental awareness in students of kindergarten and basic education, with priority given to indigenous schools in the Baixo Tapajós region.

Sustainability is short for Sustainable Development. These are integrated projects combining elements of agroforestry development, ecological resoration, and environmental education.

We initiated our first Sustainabilty project in February of 2023, this in partnership with a group of indigenous communities in the Plateau area near Santarém. Click on the link below to learn more.
