Operationalising our new nursery!

By 21. June 2022June 24th, 2022News Home

Our new nursery, located in Santana do Araguaia, will have the capacity to produce half a million seedlings every year and will become the central provider of seedlings for the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor. To help manage it, we are welcoming new additions to the BJF team!

From the vast pool of applicants provided by our Human Resources team, five were selected to join our existing nursery team, currently led by our Seed Production Analyst, Norivânia Diniz.

TRAINING SOME OF OUR NEWEST MEMBERS

Training sessions for the newest members of our nursery team were organised from the 9th to the 13th of March.

On the first day, our Field Coordinator, Carlos Eduardo, orchestrated introductory sessions, where he presented the Black Jaguar Foundation’s mission and work, explaining future steps that need to be taken to realize the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor. At the same time, Norivânia Diniz emphasised the importance of teamwork and collaboration in ensuring that healthy seedlings are able to grow in the nursery.

The rest of the week’s training sessions were held by Guilherme Faganello,  an expert in seedling production who directs projects for Embira Consultoria Ambiental.
