This September artists Ivan Nisida and Andrea Tolaini painted one of the 100 Jaguar statues that will be on display during October and November in São Paulo to raise awareness about the immediate need for conservation and restoration efforts in Brazil and worldwide!
Our Jaguar has been inspired by our work restoring the biodiversity of the Araguaia region and this beautiful piece of art will be available for auction on the 29th November – with the proceeds going to help the BJF progress in our mission!
The Jaguar parade, like the BJF, is motivated by the impact that increasing environmental degradation has had in recent years! The parade invites organisations and companies to take part in this important event, not only to raise money for their respective causes but also to raise awareness about the rapidly decreasing biodiversity occurring in Brazil and around the world!
According to IBAMA, in Brazil, the Jaguar is considered extremely vulnerable and falls under the category ‘almost threatened’ by extinction. This declining population is largely a result of deforestation, poaching and pollution, making projects, such as our regeneration of the Araguaia corridor, extremely vital to these efforts to bring back native animals and plants!
Thank you to our Brazilian sponsor and the Jaguar Parade for allowing us the opportunity to be involved in this event!
