Since the beginning of our work, Instituto Espaço Silvestre (IES) has been dedicated to projects that seek to protect nature in a serious and committed way with the next generations and with scientific technical knowledge. For this, multidisciplinary teams of specialists are involved daily with the execution of projects in several Brazilian states. In Santa Catarina, we maintain the Programa Silvestres SC, which aims to release and monitor wild animals throughout the state. This program includes the Vinaceous-breasted Amazon Reintroduction Project in the Araucaria National Park, a reference in animal reintroduction work and winner of numerous national and international awards. Also in the same state, we are responsible, since 2019, for coordinating the only Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (CETAS-SC), together with the Santa Catarina Environment Institute (IMA-SC).
On the other side of Brazil, the Espaço Silvestre Institute supports the Aves de Noronha project in the famous Fernando de Noronha archipelago, belonging to the state of Pernambuco. Through technical training and environmental education projects, our team has been bringing ways to value the local avifauna and producing scientific knowledge about these emblematic animals.
In the Pantanal of Mato Grosso, IES works through Chalana Esperança. This project created in 2020 by 4 women aims to fight fires, educate and support the population.
We know the importance and necessity of our work and, therefore, we are always thinking about new projects and new ways to expand. We greatly appreciate all our supporters and sponsors, as well as the entire IES family who are always willing to face daily challenges and smiling for a better future for all species.
