Project Description

Closed social project
Eco-Humanitarian Project

We work consistently on the diversification of the internal ecosystem.

The Melipona bees are in danger!

In an area of 15 million hectares managed by the Santa Cruz Forestry Directorate, more than 80,000 hectares are incinerated annually.

The Melipona bee, which produces raw honey, suffers great damage to its survival due to the destruction of its ecosystem. As a result, more and more young indigenous people have to leave the honey sector.

What is the task?

To identify an ecohumanist and parallel economic solution taking into account:

securing the future of the people while safeguarding their indigenous status

careful use of the rainforest, preservation of biodiversity

product development on site with the highest possible added value while maintaining profitability

project development and establishment of production of indigenous medicinal honey directly on site

The indigenous people are experts in  beekeeping. They use the small bees of the Melipona breed, a stingless mini bee. While pollinating, this bee, in conjunction with the unique plant diversity and certain flowers and tree species in this area of the rainforest, produces an enzyme in honey that leads to a healing reaction when ingested or applied externally. It is known as MGO.

Workflow 2020

Identification of an ecological-human and parallel economic solution under consideration of:

  • Securing the future of the people while maintaining their indigenous status.
  • Careful use of the rainforest and preservation of biodiversity.
  • Compensation of CO2 and promotion of climate neutrality.
  • Local project development with maximum added value and at the same time economic efficiency.
  • Local production and export of medically valuable honey.
