The Deep sponsored a ranger for a year in the Atlantic Rainforest to focus on conserving and protecting land and endangered species. 

In 2006 BIAZA teamed up with World Land Trust (WLT), an organisation with over 20 years’ experience of working in international habitat conservation in order to offer BIAZA members the opportunity to collectively raise enough money to buy an area of threatened wildlife habitat.

Phase 1:  BIAZA Reserve Project
Over three years 26 BIAZA members collectively donated over £124,000 towards the purchase of land in the Coastal Atlantic Forest of Brazil.  The purpose of this was to extend the 16,000 acres of rainforest owned, managed and protected by WLT’s project partner in Brazil, Reserva Ecológica de Guapi Assu (REGUA).

The BIAZA Reserve Project was officially launched in 2007 and by 2009, with support from BIAZA members, 1,651 acres (668 hectares) of Atlantic rainforest in Brazil were purchased. With only seven per cent of the original Atlantic forest remaining, the creation of the BIAZA Reserve is a fantastic conservation achievement.

Phase 2: BIAZA Reserve Project

Following on from this success of Phase 1, between 2010 and 2012 BIAZA members progressed on to Phase 2 of the WLT partnership, with their donations funding the salaries, uniforms and basic equipment of two reserve rangers to protect the BIAZA Reserve and the wider Guapi Assu Reserve.


The Deep donated £5,000 and sponsored a ranger for an entire year allowing for valuable training into conserving and protecting the land through activities such as; wetland habitat restoration, reforestation, species reintroduction, biodiversity monitoring, ecotourism (a vital income stream for the conservation organisation) and local education programmes.

The Atlantic rainforest is an area of high biodiversity, but is also considered to be one of the most critically endangered ecosystems in the world.
