MAMIRAUÁ PROJECT

The Mamirauá fishing community was established in 2023 at the initiative of some members of the Boca do Mamirauá community and Zyba Agency. The purpose of the project is to create a source of income for communities through recreational fishing and ecotourism, which would bring a sustainable source of income to the region throughout the year and replace more common activities in the area.

Developing new forms of livelihoods with communities through training in various tourism sectors, improving the quality of life for local families.

SUSTAINABILITY

The project is based on sustainability and improved utilization of natural resources in the region. Starting from 2024, plastic packaging will no longer be used in the communities, and by 2026, 100% of our energy will come from solar panels.

In recreational fishing, 100% of the fish caught are released back into their natural environment.
