MARINE PROTECTED AREA PLANNING
I use Systematic Conservation Planning and the latest scientific research to inform the planning of marine protected areas. Most recently I have worked with the Brazilian government, NGOs, researchers and consultants to inform the planning of 3 Marine Protected areas in the state of Sao Paulo.
ATLANTIC FOREST RESTORATION
I work with NGOs and government to inform the priority sites and actions for Atlantic Forest Restoration.
Currently I collaborate with the IIS, and a brilliant group of national and international scientists (including Hugh Possingham and Hawthorne Beyer) to identify national forest restoration priority areas.
In 2012 I co-founded the Landscapes Partnerships (Parcerias da Paisagem) project with Dr. Ana Paula Giorgi, then part of Earthwatch Brazil, focused on restoring the forest in properties and citizen science. Watch the video below to learn more about some of the benefits of this project. This project continues but is now lead by Instituto Caeté-Açu.
