New Country and new UNESCO Global Geopark is now joining GEOfood, Geoparque Seridó from Brasil!

Seridó is the 34th UNESCO Global Geopark embracing the criteria and MANIFESTO for promoting local food, and increase the awareness on geological heritage among people!
The Seridó UNESCO Global Geopark is located in northeastern Brazil, state of Rio Grande do Norte, and is made up of six municipalities: Acari, Carnaúba dos Dantas, Cerro Corá, Currais Novos, Lagoa Nova, and Parelhas. There are more than 2,800 km² of territory marked by the Caatinga (‘white forest, in the Tupi language), the only exclusively Brazilian biome, with a unique biodiversity.
The geopark is a testament to the last 600 million years of Earth’s history and is home to one of the largest scheelite mineralizations in South America, an important tungsten ore, as well as basalt flows arising from volcanic activity during the Mesozoic and Cenozoic Eras.
