Geologist, geographer, paleontologist and adventurer, the German Reinhard Maack (1892-1969) is considered the first environmentalist in Brazil. As a witness if the European woods destruction, Maack has anticipated what would happen to the Brazilian forests. Before moving to Brazil, on 1923, Maack was already a worldwide known person. On 1917 he found in Namíbia (a country at the southwestern part of Africa), in the Brandberg mountain, the set of rupestrian pictures known as the White Lady. Among his most famous works, we should mention a study called "The Continental Drift", which proves the Gondwanick theory, according to which the American and African continents were once just one in a very remote era. This work has given a prize to Maack rendered by Unesco. After living for a time in Rio de Janeiro, Maack moved to Curitiba, in order to work as mine engineer for the Mining and Colonization Company in Paraná. From 1926 on, he has leaded expeditions through the Tibagi and the Ivaí wild rivers. He has also produced geological studies of these two rivers, pointing out botanic and fauna aspects of the region bathed by the rivers. On 1949, he predicted the environmental future of Paraná, poiting out the risks of the ground erosion and the climate change caused by the wood devastation. Nowadays there is only 4% of the original forest in the State. On his tours, Maack has achieved on 1941, at the Sea Mountain, the Paraná Peak – the highest point in the South part of Brazil –, to which he himself gave the name. At the Golden Mountain, in the northwestern part of the State, he made on 1961 the very first contacts with the natives called Xetás, which exists no longer nowadays. In this experience he was accompanied by his son-in-law, a specialist in native language and cinematographer. According to Alessandro Casagrande, the Lobo-Guará consultant director, Maack himself has recorded his work in pictures and films and descriptions of the places explored by himself. Maack has also worked as a teacher at the Paraná Federal University (UFPR). He has left several masterpieces for the best knowledge of the State, such as "Geography Physics of the Paraná State" – published on 1968 and until today an environmental site: www.reinhardmaack.org .
