In March, we signed a partnership with the Municipality of Santana do Araguaia to build our third, state-of-the-art nursery. We’ll be building this nursery in the city’s nature park, and the work has already begun! This week we’ve been clearing the land, next is the construction of a bridge over the nearby river, and soon after the construction of the nursery itself. Ready to grow seedlings for the coming planting season in November!
When we met with Santana do Araguaia’s environmental secretary and his team last month, we were met with an extremely warm reception. The Agribusiness sector is one of the leading employers in the region. This project and this nursery will not only benefit our environment and provide local job opportunities, but it will contribute to the sustainable development of the agribusiness sector in Brazil and Santana do Araguaia will be at the forefront of this.
Take a look around the 2021 Black Jaguar Foundation Tree Nursery!
This is a huge milestone that has only been possible with your support! This nursery will house 500,000 seedlings and with space for workshops and environmental education, it will become a hub for the restoration of nature along the Araguaia biodiversity corridor and a center for the development of sustainable agriculture in the region. Let’s plant more trees together!
