Networking for the Amazon in Sao Paulo


It’s been an amazing week of making connections for the Amazon rainforest. Yesterday I had a meeting with a Brazilian furniture designer, Fabiola Bergamo, who has been making trips into remote reserves to work alongside of native craftsmen to build gorgeous furniture and home decor items from scraps of exotic woods that were otherwise being wasted, grasses that would otherwise be burned, and creating economic sustainability for families.

We’re very excited by the potential for collaboration, and she opened two new reserve partner possibilities to me.

I’m on my way to get my Yellow Fever shot as this trip to meet the organizations committed to the preservation process draws closer.
