What Makes Araras Lodge Special

Environmental Protection Program
Our product is Low Impact

Environmental Protection Program
When you visit Araras Lodge you are actively participating in our Environmental Preservation programs.

Did you know that in 1993 there were 27 Hyacinth Macaws (hyacinthine macaw) living inside the Araras Eco Lodge borders and its neighboring areas? Today, there are many more!

This mark was reached through nest monitoring, inhibiting the capture of chicks for commercial purposes, and educating the locals regarding a more protective attitude towards the fauna.

And we also distribute artificial nests; we are systematically planting the manduvis, an indigenous tree where more than 87% of the macaw's nests were found. With the continuous occupation and the splitting of the large ranches in the Pantanal, these trees are being cut down and have diminished sensibly for they are used to make salt trugs, besides the fact that they burn easily because of their soft consistency. We are also recuperating large areas with the palm acuri, which produces a nut that is these birds' principal source of food.

Protecting the Fauna and Flora around the area of Rio Clarinho (Clearwater River).

We've been dedicated to preserve Rio Clarinho inhibiting the deforestation on its banks and the use of motorboats that destroy its shores and therefore silt the river. Our excursions into this river are always on "Canadian Canoes".

Did you know that for 12 years the Giant River Otter is in the list of Endangered Species?
- In 1993 we had eventual news of their presence around the Araras Eco Lodge neighboring areas.
- Today we have 2 groups; the first with 8 individuals and a second one composed by 5 individuals is also sharing the river with the first one.

We bought an area 7 Kilometers distant from the lodge, at the very beginning of the river, which became an RPPN (Private Reserve of the Natural Patrimony), where we started an intensive work of surveillance, education, distribution of signs and a tight control along the river's 40 Kilometers, visiting the ranchers and inviting them to participate in our efforts to protect these beautiful and rare animals, almost completely destroyed because of the value of their furs.
