HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Donating binoculars, field guides, pens, pencils, medicine (such as aspirin) and second-hand clothes.

These items will be given to local communities which allow us to use trails on their properties, as well to a non-governamental organization that takes care of over two hundred children in one of the poorest areas of the greater Cuiabá.

Thanks to the Canadian guest: Mrs. Kim Brown, the Park Ranger that works at the Gateway of the Transpantaneira Road, got a very good pair of binoculars, that will help him on his hard work protecting the Pantanal.
You can help too! If, you have a pair of binoculars that you don’t use any more, you could bring it along or even buy a pair for less than US$50,00 for donation.
Nature says – Thanks, in advance!

On the above picture, we have a young artist called Eferson, receiving a pair of binoculars from Birders’ Exchange.
Boute Expeditions had the pleasure and honor to serve as courier.
Eferson lives in a ranch on the back country of São Paulo state, more precisely along the highway between Taubaté and Ubatuba, where he has a pair of nesting Firewood Gatherers next to his house.

Boute Expeditions donated the sign shown on the picture with the hope that having Eferson receiving visits of other birdwatchers, he will pursue his career as a bird artist. The Firewood Gatherer painting on the picture was made by him.

BOUTE EXPEDITIONS has also  partnered with Optics for the Tropics to provide new binoculars for the study and conservation of birds in Brazil. Your donation of matching funds will grant one pair of binoculars for Brazilian bird conservation. Optics for the Tropics will send you the binoculars before departure so you may hand deliver to the appropriate program. Visit www.opticsforthetropics.org for more details.

Below you will find pictures of two young boys wearing T-shirts and baseball caps with supporting messages, part of our program to help keep our birds free and alive!

As evidence of our commitment on preserving the nature in Brazil and all of our marvelous birds, we have been working in environmental education with all the communities where we take our clients.
