Teams rescue and give assistance to animals in Brumadinho

Approximately 50 professionals are working relentlessly to rescue the local fauna on both banks of the Paraopeba river following the breach of Dam I, in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, Brazil. To date, 26 domestic animals have been rescued. The task force comprises veterinarians, biologists and assistants - including Vale employees, volunteers, and advisors.

The action is coordinated by Vale's team of biologists in partnership with the Regional Council of Veterinary Medicine, which has mobilized volunteers to help in the rescue efforts and in the veterinary treatment centers set up to assist rescued animals.

Besides these centers, the initiative also includes a mobile medical care unit to provide first aid to rescued animals.
