Saúva Team

Cebolinha and Bianca

In 2017 we (Contra Mestre Cebolinha, Bianca, Cauê, Nayani and Lani from Bamberg) emigrated to Brazil, where we realized our dream in Nilo Peçanha, Bahia and built up the project "Saúva" (leaf-cutting ant). 

Our goal is to support and encourage the poor families living in the rainforest to help us protect and reforest the rainforest.

Cauê, Nayani und Lani

Cauê, Nayani and Lani are our smallest Saúvas (leaf-cutting ants), who moved with us to Brazil :-)
