Fundação Ecológica Cristalino

Latin America

Our Vision and Mission

The mission of Cristalino Ecological Foundation (FEC) is to promote conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in the agriculture frontier of Southern Amazon, with emphasis on the mosaic of protected areas, especially the region of the Cristalino State Park.

Created in 1999, the Cristalino Ecological Foundation (FEC) is a pioneering non-governmental organization working for biodiversity conservation in the Cristalino region, in the State of  Mato Grosso, located in the southern Brazilian Amazon basis. 

FEC also conducts research projects on the local fauna and flora and invests in conservation education using educational tools for children of the community. It supports public policies involving a variety of social agents, with a view to developing new, participatory, and transformative economic models that reconcile a responsible economy with the conservation of natural resources.

Through partnerships with Brazilian and foreign organizations, FEC supports scientific research aimed at deepening the knowledge about the region, providing data for the management of the RPPNs, and promoting local economic development.
