Sharing knowledge on wildlife conservation and welfare since 2005.


People participating in events





Since 2005.


Goal: to share knowledge towards wild animals  conservation and welfare.

Who we are!

Fauna in Foco was created in 2005 aiming at disseminating and sharing knowledge on the environmental area, particularly wild fauna.  


Over the past 16 years, several courses and training opportunities have been conducted in the area of fauna, environmental inspection, licensing, lectures, and preparatory courses for public contests in the environmental area.

We have condensed our mission into a new format, digital, to provide  important information to a greater number of people, optimizing time.
