About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

Considered the only tropical fjord the Brazilian coast, Saco do Mamanguá houses a precious marine nursery that, despite the advances of modernity, is still relatively untouched thanks to its natural protection and the mobilization of the caiçaras (the name for the traditional coastal inhabitants of the South and Southeast of Brazil). Addressing the urgent need to preserve this natural heritage, the book aims to make society aware of this issue and preserve the rich socio-cultural memory of the region.
