  PRESERVE MURIQUI | ABOUT US  
       
    The Society for Muriqui's Preservation, “Preserve-Muriqui” is a non profitable entity, located in Caratinga's Municipal district, founded by initiative of the Abdala's family and with widespread support from the local community.

Its primary goal is to continue with the conservationist work of Mr. Feliciano Abdala, preserving a forest of about 900 ha that once belonged to his Farm, Montes Claros, which was transformed in the Natural Patrimony Private Reserve Feliciano Abdala, where survives the biggest population of the northern muriqui (Brachyteles hypoxanthus). Muriqui-of the-north is considered as species critically endangered and one of the 25 primates most threatened of the world.

Our mission is to continually seek a long term solution to guarantee muriqui-of the-north preservation and its natural environment, with emphasis in the long duration research that supplies solid bases to consubstantiate the handling plan of the Reserve and the activities involving the neighbors’ properties of the reserve. Our perspective is to promote joint work between researchers, producers and inhabitants of the neighboring properties and of the local communities, in the development of a series of activities that aims at job and income generation inside a context of natural resources preservation and sustainable rural development.
