With an area of ​​9,300 hectares, the Quilombo do Frechal Extractive Reserve is located in the municipality of Mirinzal, in Maranhao. Considered a conservation unit since 1942, the region is part of a list of 132 areas that are part of the “Adopt a Park” program, launched in February this year by the federal government. This Monday, 5, the brewery Heineken signed a protocol of intentions to support the preservation of the area with the value of R $ 500 thousand for a period of one year. The agreement was signed at Ibama’s headquarters in São Paulo, located in the central region of the São Paulo capital. The Minister of the Environment, Ricardo Salles, and Heineken’s director of corporate affairs, Mauro Homem, were present.

The interest in adopting the Quilombo do Frechal Extractive Reserve region arose due to its location, explains Mauro Homem. “For us, that area is very close to two major breweries. For us, all this support made sense at that moment, ”he says. The value of the signed protocol is more than double the regular budget of the conservation unit, according to the Minister of the Environment, Ricardo Salles. “In Maranhão, especially, a region that suffers greatly from the need for investments, had degraded areas, burned areas, and this investment of more than twice the regular budget will allow for the recovery of areas, inspection, more efficiency, more technology. Anyway, a series of improvements for that region ”, he says. The Quilombo do Flechal extractive reserve is the sixth conservation unit supported by the private initiative under the program.
