SCIANTS Amazonia is an initiative that aims to promote scientific information to increase knowledge about the diversity of ants in the Amazonia. Founded in 2021, the base of the project is at the Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi (Belém, Pará, Brazil) and has the participation of researchers from the subjects of ecology, taxonomy, systematics, conservation, natural history, and public outreach. The project also has a collaborative network of researchers from public and private institutions, national and international. SCIANTS Amazonia has four key focus areas:
