Monitoring and protecting of one active nest of a couple of harpy eagles - Harpia harpyja
During the 80´s and 90´s we confirmed regular visits by a female harpy eagle to the close surroundings of our visitors centre, so we set-up to find that harpy couple´s nest, search that granted a positive result after 12 years of searching through our guide Ilke "Yuqui", locating it not too far from our visitors centre, being a fully active nesting site which obviously became a "star" activity to our guests and which can be visited by all of them under controled guidance and following certain "rules to the game"; this harpy eagle couple has granted us various nesting seasons, each one resulting in a healthy and strong harpy youngster, which after thorough teaching and atention by its parents has flown off to search for its own future.

OUR NON-GOVERNMENTAL & NON-PROFFIT SUPPORT AND FUNDING ORGANIZATION
Instituto de Desenvolvimento Socioambiental do Vale do Javari
Taking into account the complex policies and presence of authorities always interested in a proper handling inside the brazilian law as to any participative organization related to the local colonist communities, we have searched for alternatives that allow us to act directly in these neighbouring villages towards aspects of live quality improvement based on a sustainable management of the surrounding environment, but in an autonomous and sepparated manner from the Reserva Natural Palmari, which allows us to enhance the portfolio of real possibilities and the including of other interested parties; based on said premises we created the idea, designed the policies and internal procedure protocols, located other interested parties on an international level, coughed-up a viable administrative organigramme in accordance to the reality of the region, decided the immediate and secondary priorities and gave life to the Instituto de Desenvolvimento Socioambiental do Vale do Javari (www.idsavj.org) following the rules of brazilian law as to the conditions surrounding an “NGO”, in Brazil appropriately named “OCIP – Organização da Sociedade Civil de Interesse Público = Civil societie´s organization of public interest". This institute – with the funding coming from each and every guest visiting the Reserva Natural Palmari , plus the funding donated by various multi-national firms related to it, plus the fundings from tour & excursion & tourism operating agencies and their clients visiting the Reserva Natural Palmari, plus the direct in situ support of visitors that donate their holliday time helping to push forward any communal proyect and many other of ut-most diverse inspirations – has created to the present date a participative bond with 5 local communities, which now thrive with new and fully equipped schools, aqueducts, septic waste-water treatment services, bridges and other acomplished proyects regarding communal infrastructure, apart from receiving donations such as cloths, books, shoes, torches and other domestic utensils. Further, we search for new proyects, new attitudes and new routines looking to change the daily modus vivendi for the colonists in these associated villages, all based hopefully on simple ideas as the one´s expressed in our proposal “Proyecto: Educación + Donación = Compromiso » Cambio 180°” (http://www.palmari.org/vcd/es_ES/180/index.htm) and which indistinctively will guide the communities to live comfortable, rich lives with real possibilities towards a promising future based on a practical platform that will result in a healthy, ecologically protected way, its forests and water bodies used on a sustainable and economically viable scenario without nature loss and presenting us a sound surrounding environment.
