The restoration of the Pantanal, its colours and lives, and the emotional bonds that were affected by the fire, is also a process of reconstructing people.  To close the wounds that were destroyed by fire.  Restoring the environment involves a much bigger question: that of reconnecting to the territory from a spiritual and cosmological perspective; and it is the women who are at the forefront of this.
