With booklets and binoculars in hand, attentive eyes look to the skies: groups of up to 50 children observe endangered bird species in a park in Asunción, Paraguay. Known as the Guardians Club, this is a socioenvironmental initiative supported by Vale.
Their activities, organized by NGO Guyra Paraguay, are aimed at achieving objectives aligned to Vale sustainable practices: conservation of biodiversity and environmental preservation.
Groups are made up of students from a riverside community and the children of Vale employees. During the meetings, biologists and specialists explain the importance of environmental balance while identifying and counting the birds.
Five species are monitored by the Guardians Club. Find out more:
