Amigos de Iracambi is a non-profit, registered in Brazil and the US, and located in one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots: Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. At Iracambi you’ll be on the front line of biodiversity conservation and sustainability and you’ll gain firsthand experience in biodiversity conservation (reforestation, medicinal plants, forest monitoring,) and sustainability, (community outreach and environmental education.). Iracambi is all about Saving Forests and Changing Lives, and you are warmly welcomed to become a part of it!
We’ve been here for over twenty years, and during that time we’ve planted over 150,000 native forest trees, founded the first program of environmental education in the region, created thousands of acres of protected areas, hosted 2000 students, researchers and volunteers from 71 countries, and impacted the lives of thousands of people in our region: the Serra do Brigadeiro mountains.
Our alumni (we call them Iracambistas) can be found across the world in academia, business, the arts, government, and international organizations.
