About us

AMAP Germany (Almada Mata Atlântica Project) is a non-profit nature conservation organization that focuses on the protection of the golden-headed lion tamarins which are classified as endangered by the IUCN. Their only habitat, the Atlantic Forest on Brazil’s cocoa coast, has shrunk to a minimum—more than 90 percent has already been destroyed. Through land acquisition, reforestation, sustainable-ecological cocoa cultivation, and designation of protected areas, AMAP promotes the preservation and expansion of the already highly fragmented habitat of the Mata Atlântica for people and nature. Starting point of the activities in the field of action and headquarters of AMAP Brazil is the Fazenda Bom Pastor near the Almada River.
