‘Na Trilha da Transformação’ or 'On the Trail of Transformation' series premieres on Canal Off showing the partnership between Jeep and Project Tamar through the eyes and memories of Nina Marcovaldi
July 31, 2018 - Nina Marcovaldi grew up watching the sea turtles. Even before graduating as a biologist, she knew, as few people do, that such species swim miles, breaking thousands of paths across the seas returning to the beach where they were born. Still, Nina, the daughter of the founders of the Tamar Project, could not imagine that she would blaze her own trail along the Brazilian coast to find her origins, much less that this adventure would be recorded through the lenses of the Canal Off.
This year, the biologist redid the same route that her parents, Guy and Neca Marcovaldi did in the 1970s, aboard a Willys Jeep, to found the pioneering research and the preservation of marine life on the Brazilian coast. Nina crossed the Brazilian states from North to South driving the modern Jeep Wrangler, Renegade and Compass on the route of the Tamar units along the country's coast. This off-road adventure in total contact with nature gave birth to the series On the Trail of Transformation, which debuts on Tuesday, July 31 at 9pm, both on Canal Off and on social networks.
"It will please those who enjoy nature and adventure", says Nina. With four 25-minute episodes in the first season, the series takes the viewer along a trail of beautiful landscapes and paradisiacal beaches. Between roads of asphalt, mud, rocks and sand, Nina goes to communities impacted by the transforming legacy of Tamar. With an adventurous spirit, she also takes advantage of the trip to surf and dive, her favorite sports, and enjoy off-road adventures in the best Jeep spirit.
The first season of the series was recorded in Fernando de Noronha (Pernambuco), Florianópolis (Santa Catarina), Aracajú (Sergipe), Ubatuba (São Paulo) and Praia do Forte (Bahia). "It was an incredible experience to travel through my country visiting places where the history of Tamar, which is also mine, began to convey the message of nature preservation", says Nina.
