Who are we

Created in 2013 we are a company of private investors striving for the preservation of the Amazon forest. We are fully independent and do not receive any subsidies.

As a small project, we started with 30 hectares Amazonian forest bought in 2011. The first fittings began in June 2012 thanks to the help of the Amerindian members of Panthera living on the spot.
