AMAPs mission is the long term conservation of the Mata Atlântica, one of the top five hot spots of biodiversity in the world.
How to donate
AMAP achieves its mission by using a wide range of activities. AMAPs first project in the region starts in 2017 as a direct reforestation action to increase the habitat of the golden-headed lion tamarins. In the following years AMAP has expanded its activities. All projects are only possible through a large number of contributors.
AMAP secures rain forest fragments and habitat for the golden-headed lion tamarins through land purchase. AMAP Brazil purchases land specifically to protect and reforest Mata Atlântica forests and to establish sustainable cacao production. One hectare of land costs about 3,000 euros. If you are interested in supporting AMAP in the purchase of land, we would be pleased to discuss the matter in a personal conversation.
With your financial support, we may be able to expand our activities and support a further urgently needed conservation project. A one-time donation can also be used for one of our already running projects. We would be pleased to discuss your ideas in a personal conversation.
Donate to a particular project
Support our reforestation efforts
Donations are used to purchase seedlings and carry out necessary maintenance on the reforestation areas. A seedling and the necessary maintenance in the following years costs about 50 Euros. The monthly salary of an employee is around 300 euros. You can directly donate via our German webpage.
AMAP supports research projects to secure the survival of golden-headed lion tamarins in the wild. To do this, equipment must be purchased on a regular basis. A collar transmitter, for example, costs about 250 euros. To carry out the monitoring, AMAP has hired two research assistants. One day of field work costs about 50 euros.
Support the Landscape Restoration Project
Support indigenous families of the Caramuru Paraguaçu Reserve in their restoration efforts. Donations for seedlings, equipment and manpower are needed.
Cocoa research for sustainable cocoa cultivation
AMAP supports a long-term monitoring as a partner of the Westlake University and the Universidade Estadual de Santa Cruz. One focus of research are ecological intensification methods to increase yields of cocoa production in order to conserve the traditional cabruca agroforestry system and thus its biodiversity. AMAP provides three research assistants in this project. One day of field work costs about 50 euros.
Support of field work
AMAP supports students in carrying out their fieldwork in the region with accommodation, food and logistics. One day of fieldwork costs about 25 euros.
