An expedition to the Tapajós river, next to Sawré Muybu indigenous land, home to the Munduruku people, Pará state, Brazil. The Brazilian Government plans to build 43 dams in the Tapajós river basin. The largest planned dam, São Luiz do Tapajós, will impact the life of indigenous peoples and riverside communities. Mega-dams like these threaten the fragile biome of the Amazon, where rivers are fundamental to regeneration and distribution of plant species and the survival of local flora. Renewable energy, such as solar and wind, holds the key to Brazil’s energy future.

Expedição ao Rio Tapajós, na região da Terra Indígena Sawré Muybu, do povo Munduruku, no Pará. O governo brasileiro planeja construir 43 hidrelétricas na bacia do Tapajós. A maior delas, São Luiz do Tapajós, terá impacto sobre a vida dos povos indígenas e comunidades ribeirinhas. Barragens como essas ameaçam o frágil bioma da Amazônia, onde os rios são fundamentais para a regeneração e distribuição de espécies vegetais e a sobrevivência da flora local. Energias renováveis, como solar e eólica, detêm a chave para o futuro energético do Brasil.
