MOST Cerrado Foundation calls for special attention to the Civil House, Minister Eliseu Padilha, requesting rapid in the signature of the proposed expansion of the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park, key initiative for the conservation of the Cerrado biome.

Approved by the Ministry of the environment and by the Government of Goiás, the proposal is an urgent initiative to strengthen the conservation of the Cerrado, bioma that represents 22% of the Brazilian territory, is considered the largest savanna biodiversity on the planet and runs serious risk of extinction.

Who proposes the magnification is the Chico Mendes Institute for biodiversity conservation (ICMBio), Manager of all conservation units (CU) of Brazil. The Park was created in 1961 with an original area of 625 1000 acres and called Tocantis National Park, but had its size reduced to 171 1000 hectares in 1972, when he changed his name, and to current 65 1000 hectares in 1981, when he had to make room for the construction of the highway GO-239.

Why enlarge the Park?

Expand the Park was a decision based on technical studies and public consultations to society, including local communities, completed recently by the ICMBio. With the presidential decree signed, the current area is multiplied four times and will resume its original space, consolidating not only local and national conservation objectives, but also international recognition, through the title of World Natural Heritage.

MOST Cerrado Foundation knows that enlarge the Park means more commitment to the conservation of the Cerrado and is worried about the delay in signing the Civil House, since the proposal has approval from both the Ministry of the environment and how the Government of Goiás.

Rich biodiversity

Member of the most important zone (core zone) of the biosphere reserve of the Savannah and the ecological corridor Paranã-Pirineus, the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park shelters important ecosystems or natural, typical of cerrado, with wide variety of vegetation, such as fields, forests of galleries, riparian forests, palm groves, clean dirty fields and fields, with the expansion, also includes an area of dry forest.

The National Park is a refuge for endangered species (endangered species) or endemic (that only exist in the site), such as the Marsh deer, Geoffroy’s cat, Maned Wolf, margay, merganser, giant anteater, quail, burrowing owl, giant Armadillo, grey Eagle, rufescent Tiger Heron jararaca and the Jaguar, the largest carnivorous mammal from South America and included in the list of species of endangered brazilian fauna.

Some of these animals such as the Jaguar, need large areas for their survival. There is special attention for the merganser, severely threatened, which is the region’s second habitat in importance, in terms of nesting, to ensure its survival.
