The policy adopted by the Araras Eco Lodge, includes the respect to the local habits and our influence is directed towards the development of our neighbors’ environmental behavior, also at municipal, social and political levels.

We not only disseminate basic concepts to our employees - all from Poconé, the nearest town, but our influence extends through communal and political work Our director, André Thuronyi, is a consultant to State Government organs like Tourism and Environment Secretariat, he was the Chapada dos Guimarães’ municipal Secretary and he’s a permanent member of Amazon’s GTC, for implanting Eco Tourism in the legal Amazon, he’s an active member of ABAV/MT, of which he’s the President for the years 1999/2001, he’s the Vice-President of ADEPAM (Pantanal Defense Association) and coordinator of Corredor do Ecoturismo - ECONET Brasil.

Regarding the tourist occupation in the Pantanal, we defend the concept of strengthening the proprietors of areas with orientation and financing to help them create lodges with family management with 5 to 7 units, being severely against big hotel projects in the region.
