The Exchange

Our Environmental volunteers help us with mangrove restoration, environmental education classes for children, community outreach and online campaigns. Environmental degradation in Itacaré means more than “just” loss of flora and fauna; it poses a tremendous risk to the livelihoods of thousands of families who rely on fishing and subsistence agriculture.

Program Details

Our Environmental Conservation and Mangrove Restoration project occupies a special place in the portfolio of programs we are currently developing.

Itacaré has been blessed by an unparalleled natural beauty that comes from its harmonic and almost exotic combination of Atlantic rainforest, secluded beaches, picturesque rivers, gorgeous waterfalls, mangroves and plenty of wildlife. Therefore, it is our duty to help protecting this special ecosystem, even more so in times of global warming and climate change.

The main goals of our environmental program are to support conservation efforts, in collaboration with local partners and communities, and to form a new generation of youth environmental leaders who can take Itacaré to sustainable development paths, considering the principles of social-environmental justice.
