Chalana Esperançe: Conservation of the Pantanal Biome

Chalana Esperança is a project of the Espaço Silvestre family, founded by four biologists in response to the fires that destroyed 26% of the Pantanal in 2020, killing 17 million animals. The collective provided emergency aid to local and traditional communities from September to November and, later, began working with medium and long-term conservation strategies, through environmental education, support and promotion of ecotourism and capacity building with local communities. The collective had a remarkable performance, especially in the North Pantanal, due to its ability to articulate different entities in a pragmatic way, implementing strategies for the conservation of the fauna and the well-being of the communities. In less than a year since its foundation, Chalana Esperança has mobilized more than 200,000 Reais in direct and indirect collections, all of which are devoted to the conservation of the biome. #chalanaesperanca #Pantanal #salveoPantanal #chalanapelaconservação #chalana
