On Fazenda Barranco Alto we actively promote environmental conservation by supporting research by Brazilian and International Universities. Such as Universidade Federal do Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS), Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Universidade do Estado de São Paulo (UNESP), Stanford University, University of Bonn, University of Zurich, University of Wageningen and others.
We have a "Researcher House" suitable for groups of up to 8-12 people, with ample working/studying space, Internet connection and all necessary field assistance.
To date research is being conducted in geology, entomology, ecology, ethology and more.
If you and/or your organization are interested in performing any kind of research or field work here in the Pantanal please contact us!
