Instituto Terra is the result of the initiative of the couple Lélia Deluiz Wanick Salgado and Sebastião Salgado, who were confronted with the environmental degradation of the former cattle farm of the family of Sebastião Salgado - like the many other rural units located in the city Mineira de Aimorés in Brazil.
