THE PROJECT

This organization is a national park that has for 49 years successfully helped preserve the natural environment and green areas in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Originally opened in 1961 this park is not only a fantastic destination to visit as a tourist but it also helps to maintain and regulate both temperature and water supply to the city. This tropical forest is home a wide variety of biodiversity that get to enjoy several species of Atlantic forest, breath taking waterfalls and natural caves. Due to the size of the park the amount of maintenance required is vast and volunteer work is greatly appreciated. In addition to learning about conservation problems in Brazil you will get to experience the life and culture and in doing so greatly improve your Portuguese language skills.
