(Scoutmaster Botosso)

The mascot is a very present representative in our bioma and in the BASE area: the seriema (Cariama cristata). Affectionately named “SERENA”, it is a bird of distinct personality and chant.

Its beautiful figure was a source of inspiration for the poem:

SA, SE ou SI
(chefe Botosso)
Vôo alto
vôo quando quero
dou rasante
sou como “Quero-Quero”

Subo em cupinzeiro
ou no mourão daporteira
corro como louca
por estradas ou no mato rasteiro

Sou do cerrado
quando em “vêis” hei de variar
mas é no pequizeiro
lugar “bão” de ficar

Canto alto canto forte
vocês hão de me notar
eu sou a Seriema
vim lhes representar!

SERENA symbolically translates the pace of work of the BASE team, since, even though they seem to give short flights and be at the mercy of natural hazards, their chant echoes away, attracting those who are enchanted by their characteristics, beauty and strength.
