About 4 million hectares in the Pantanal were affected in 2020 by fires - corresponding to 26% of the biome. To prevent tragedies like this from recurring, Documenta Pantanal mobilized the art market in a chain of solidarity in favor of preserving the Pantanal ecosystem. This is how the “Artists for Pantanal” emerged, by putting together a campaign to raise and sell works of art, bringing together artists, galleries, and buyers with the goal of raising two million Brazilian Reais – funds that will be managed by SOS Pantanal and entirely earmarked for investment in equipment, training and maintenance of voluntary fire brigades in the region for a period of three years.
