Environmental Projects

Ibiti Projeto covers 6 thousand hectares of preserved areas or areas in the process of regeneration. Rewilding is the basis of our projects: it encompasses ecosystem protection, planting and constant management of native species, spring protection, soil enrichment, reintroduction of animals (Refaunation Program), environmental education, and, mainly, the cultivation of a respectful relationship with all living beings.


Promotes the reintroduction of native fauna species as a strategy to restore the ecosystem and thus reverse the loss of biodiversity. Medium-sized animals, such as the paca, are once again being seen in the region, as well as the cougar, indicating a healthy environment throughout the food chain.


In partnership with the Muriqui Instituto de Biodiversidade (MIB), the goal is to increase the muriquis population, protect it, and collaborate on the scientific knowledge of the species. Critically endangered, the northern muriqui can be seen at Muriqui’s House, a fully fenced 4-hectare semicaptivity. 


Since 2016, three large vivaria – with native trees, plenty of food and drinking fountains – anchor our participation in ASAS – Area de Soltura de Animais Silvestres (Wild Animal Release Area). There we receive and manage rescued birds and mammals, usually victims of trafficking. As soon as they recover, they are released.  


Project for research and conservation of the cougar, allied to ecotourism. The goal is its monitoring, using camera traps, capture and installation of a GPS collar. To involve our guest, there will be tracking activities and nocturnal focus. 


We prioritize products without packaging (or reusable/biodegradable packaging). All recyclable material is sent to the Recycling Center. In another area, the organic residues are composted, transformed into humus and used as fertilizer.


It is a movement to neutralize and regenerate the carbon footprint by taking over areas that are in a process of natural regeneration. The project began with the Mata dos Comuneiros, which occupies one hectare and neutralizes the ecological footprint of our employees and collaborators. 

We avoid as much as possible the use of vehicles that cause soil degradation and carbon emissions. Therefore, if the visitor wants to use his car, a fee is charged, which is entirely used for Zero Print. 


Environmental education is the spark that awakens in every person the need to take care of the Earth, not only from an environmental perspective, but also from a political, economic, social and ethical perspective. Several actions are aimed at environmental education of employees, residents and students. Dozens of school groups have already visited the recycling shed, the compost heap and the vegetable garden. At the University of Ibitipoca, we give lectures and share experiences. We hope to involve people, because the success of environmental projects depends on the local community understanding and appreciating the principle of reuniting with nature and living beings.
