2020 is definetely being a tough year for the Pantanal. First we had the pandemy that practically halted the tourism and thus the income of numerous local families, now we have the big problem of the wild fires. On this dry season the fire is consuming the Pantanal at an alarming rate, maybe the worst year in history. Thousands of hectares are being destroyed and an uncountable number of animals are dying.
The governmental aid is small and tied to bureoucracies and questionable political motives, so it takes very long to reach where it really needs to. So local tourism operators, lodges and NGO’s have united to fight the fires in the most critical areas. But this requires money and in a year where tourism is halted, gathering the needed resources is not that simple. We need urgent resources to buy equipment and pay local workers to fight the fires on the field. The works are being focused in North Pantanal, specially around the Transpantaneira and the Meeting of the Waters State Park, in Porto Jofre area.
So I am selling fine art prints as a way to gather resources for the cause. Papaya Imagens, located in São Paulo, gently gave 5 free prints in high quality inkjet at the size 59 x 42 cm (A2), in museum quality Canson paper. The amount paid will be 100% donated to fight the fire in the Pantanal. The money will be transferred to Panthera, an NGO with high international prestige in the conservation of the big cats, with a strong presence in North Pantanal. All of the accountability will be showed on this page and on my social medias. Rest assured that all your donation will be destined directly and quickly to fight the fires.
