O Boticário


Considered to be one of the pioneers in the environmental movement in Brazil, he joined the Brazilian Navy at 17 and remained there for 40 years, reaching the post of Vice-Admiral. As a militant conservationist, he was coordinator of the studies for the creation of the Inter-ministerial Commission for Ocean Resources, of which he was the first secretary. In 1981, he became chairman of the Fundação Brasileira para a Conservação da Natureza (FBCN – Brazilian Foundation for Nature Conservation) which, at the time, led Brazilian conservationism. In 1991, he devised the Action Plan for the Atlantic Forest, one of the most important compilations on this biome. He was author or co-author of 18 books on conservation and correlated subjects, chairman of the Sociedade Brasileira de Proteção Ambiental (Sobrapa – Brazilian Society for Environmental Protection) and member of the board of trustees at the following organizations: the Boticário Group Foundation for Nature Protection, Fundação Biodiversitas, Fundação SOS Mata Atlântica, WWF-Brasil, Fundação Flora de Apoio à Botânica, Fundo Brasileiro para a Biodiversidade (Funbio), and Sociedade para a Conservação das Aves do Brasil (Save).
