AMAP is dedicated to the conservation of the Mata Atlântica and its biodiversity.

AMAP is a German-Brazilian non-profit conservation organization. AMAP was founded in Germany in 2016 and began its mission in Bahia in 2017 after establishing an association of the same name in Brazil, aiming to save the habitat of the golden-headed lion tamarins. In the following years AMAP has expanded its mission to the conservation of the Mata Atlântica and its flora and fauna, for the benefit of people and nature. The golden-headed lion tamarin is the symbol for the mission.

AMAP promotes the conservation and expansion of the highly fragmented Mata Atlântica through through a variety of activities, including land acquisition, reforestation, support of research projects and organic sustainable cacao cultivation. Our statute you can find here.
The base of our activities in the region is the association's own farm "Bom Pastor" not far from the Almada River.
