Projeto Filosoclics®Mantiqueira
The filosoclics®Mantiqueira Project is aimed to bringing nature and the inhabitants of great urban centers closer. It also promotes helpful data for conservational purposes.
We will introduce species of fauna and flora, specially birds, through a photographic mapping. The area of study comprises the region between Gonçalves and Sapucaí-Mirim cities in the State of Minas Gerais and São Bento do Sapucaí City, in the state of São Paulo, all part of Serra da Mantiqueira. It belongs to the ecological corridor of the Serra do Mar, a hotspot or prior area inside the Brazilian Atlantic RainForest (Mata Atlântica) for the conservation of flora species as well as an IBA (Important Bird Área – for the conservation of bird species).

We work hard to spread the culture of sustainability. We believe that the more people aware about the importance of this theme in the routine of their lives, soon we will have a world more balanced and fair. We believe that just as there was the “Iluminism” in the late 17th century now is the time for a new awareness.
