Activities of the Neotropical Community Consulting Calama, in Madeira River -conservation of large migratory catfish from the Amazon:
We planned a boat trip in the Madeira River as part of activities for WFMD in the Brazilian Amazon. However, we had to adjust it due to the historic floods (see http://infoamazonia.org/2014/03/greenpeace-brasil-historic-flood-of-the-madeira-river-changes-life-in-porto-velho/#!/story=post-8716&loc=-8.77678435,-63.91081179420001,7 and http://www.internationalrivers.org/blogs/258/grab-for-profits-pushes-madeira-river-past-its-limits-during-historic-floods).
In order to keep our program, we had to move downstream 180 km since the schools from Porto Velho canceled the program because the schools reconstruction.
But, at the end I believe the day on the village (named Calama – 20 L 513682.71 m E 9112693.64 m S) was very interesting and locals joined us on the proposal activities.
Event: THE CEPTA/ICMBIO IN THE “WORLD FISH MIGRATION DAY 2014”
José Augusto Senhorini , CEPTA
We would like to let you know how much this event meant to us and all the children who visited CEPTA.
There is a new post on our website, if you could please post it on WFMD facebook page: http://www.icmbio.gov.br/cepta/destaques/52-visita-de-estudantes-do-ensino-fundamental-supera-as-expectativas-do-cepta.html
The event exceeded our expectations as we are still being contacted by local schools to schedule new visits. We counted 700 students that came to CEPTA from Monday to Saturday and there are more to come!
May 24th was a special day for us. We received children from the local community and they spent the day with us. We had lunch together and after the programed activities the children had a soccer match.
We would like to thank all of you and also our co-workers and volunteers, who helped us deliver a really great week.
