Heart of Brazil Sponsorship Opportunities

Misty Amazonian rain forest with lianasCorporate sponsors will benefit from the extensive media coverage which our projects will attract. Individual sponsors can choose to receive publicity or to remain anonymous.

We won the Royal Geographical Society's Neville Shulman Award, which provided a substantial part of the core cost of the Heart of Brazil expedition. We also received grants from Rainforest Concern and Artists' Project Earth, which combined made the expedition possible.

Corporate sponsorship for the projects we are now developing is vital, in whatever amount and in whatever form.
