Instituto Terra

Instituto Terra is a non-profit civil organization founded in April 1998. It is dedicated to environmental restoration and sustainable rural development in the Vale do Rio Doce. The region was originally covered by the Atlantic Forest and includes the municipalities of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo, bathed by the Rio Doce watershed. Instituto Terra is the result of the initiative of the couple Lélia Deluiz Wanick Salgado and Sebastião Salgado, who, faced with the scenario of environmental degradation in which the former cattle ranch acquired from Sebastião Salgado's family - as well as many other rural units located in the town of Aimorés - was located, made a decision: to return to nature what decades of environmental degradation had destroyed. 20130405140043_montagem_site-1140x399 Source: Sebastião Salgado 20140616153350_Viveiro_instituto_terra_2012_by_Weverson_Rocio_2 Source: Sebastião Salgado 328px-Reboisement_par_l'Institut_Terra
