Know more to conserve, always
We are a non-profit institution dedicated to nature conservation. Our projects mainly involve the conservation of rare and endangered plant species in the Araucaria Forest. We generate and disseminate technical-scientific information, produce seedlings, carry out forest restoration activities and social-environmental awareness and sensitization actions.
We carry out technical visits, lectures, volunteer events and courses with a theoretical basis on activities aimed at the conservation of flora, such as seed collection, seedling production, restoration and forest enrichment.
Our seed was planted in 1998, with the creation of Grupo Chauá, formed by nature lovers. Over the years, the idea has matured, the group has expanded its horizons, formalized its work structure in 2003 and the objective has become even greater – to know more in order to always conserve.
The Chauá Society is a nongovernmental organization funded in 2003, our mission is to promote the flora and natural ecosystems conservation.
We aim to be a reference institution in nature conservation by integrating scientific research, training, development, and implementation of conservation strategies.
The major part of the institution work consists of establishing and implementing projects for saving endangered plant species, mainly in the Araucaria Forest (an important and reduced ecosystem in the Brazilian Atlantic Rain Forest).
Since 2003, the Chauá Society has been developing management plans for protected areas, diverse research on flora, and public awareness about the importance of native ecosystems conservation.
The most important project of the Chauá Society is part of the Global Trees Campaign, which started endangered species trees and currently contributes mapping with representative production of seedlings and reintroduction of rare and threatened species of the Araucaria Forest.
The challenge is to carry on all the developed work to secure the conservation of the species and ecosystems, despite the political situation across the country does not contribute in a positive way for any environmental action or the economic viability of your projects.
