The Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge is totally in accordance with the environmental laws and strictly follows sustainability principles, from its construction to the operation:
- We kept the Permanent Preserved Area (APP), leaving 30 m of riverbank bush untouched, preventing sandy of rivers and erosion.
- Our endeavor followed the norms of an Environment Control Plan elaborated by a group of forestry engineers and biologists, aiming to minimize the impacts of the undertaking and to have a complete understanding of the local ecosystem.
- All the wood used in the construction of the lodge came from reservation of responsible management forests.
- We make selective garbage collection.
- Our sewer system is treated in biological tanks. There is no sewage release into the rivers or ground water.
In the lodge building time, we placed bungalows, the restaurant and the reception in way minimize the impact on the area and to keep the scene in harmony with the forest. We believe that ecotourism is one of the main allies for the preservation of Amazon fauna and flora. The conscientious tourism generates income, guarantees the preservation of the native forest, it assists government and still spread the environment education between the local people and visitors.
