SAVE Brasil has been working for 15 years dedicated to the conservation of Brazilian birds and nature. Following a participatory approach, we develop and implement conservation strategies and actions with local and national organizations, government agencies, companies, community leaders, researchers and members of civil society. Today we operate in nine Brazilian states, with eight biodiversity conservation projects and one people engagement project.
“Birds have changed my life and through SAVE Brasil I can repay by protecting their lives!”
Daniela Maia, Friend of SAVE Brasil
“It’s an honour to be a friend of SAVE Brasil and to know that in this way I’m contributing to protect endangered species, such as Blue-eyed Ground-Dove and Black-fronted Piping-Guan.”
Ney Matsumura, Friend of SAVE Brasil
Of the 13,000 lmportant Bird & Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) identified by BirdLife worldwide, 277 are most severely under threat. Vital sites, such as Cambodia’s Lomphat Wildlife Sanctuary, are home to globally threatened birds such as Giant Ibis and other IBA ‘trigger species’. They face the most intense pressures and need our urgent help.
It’s no joke! Penguins are a highly threatened group of birds. On World Penguin Day, we’re celebrating the incredible (and shocking) feats of the world’s best avian swimmers, sharing the work of BirdLife Partners working to protect penguins around the world, and giving you a chance to walk among a penguin colony.
