Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (Portuguese: Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente e dos Recursos Naturais Renováveis, IBAMA) is the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment's administrative arm.[1][2] IBAMA supports anti-deforestation of the Amazon, and implements laws against deforestation where the government ceases to implement. IBAMA works to keep the forest from loggers, farming, agricultural farm grazing and anything that would threaten the Amazon.

Spix's macaw[edit]

Among IBAMA's diverse environmental and natural resources activities, it manages The Working Group for the Recovery of the Spix's macaw and the associated Ararinha Azul project for conserving one of the rarest birds in the world. However the last Spix's macaw living in the wilderness disappeared in 2000 and the species became extinct in the wild.[3]

Weakening[edit]

Ever since the presidency of Bolsonaro, the Amazon forest has seen a 278% increase of the rate of deforestation, this translates for this year up until July to circa 870 square miles of rain forest (data taken from the Brazil's National Institute for Space Research), part of the deforestation has been driven by unchecked arson,"Ibama, has reportedly had to halt operations in Novo Progresso because it no longer has the full backing of the police and national guard" [4]
