REFORESTATION IN BRAZIL

Trees

Image de couverture

In a nutshell :


The Brazilian Atlantic is one of the most biodiverse spots in the world, yet deforestation has led to the creation of many small and isolated fragments and the reduction of native species.

This projects is reversing deforestation and the loss of its biodiversity. Trees are planted in a way that forest corridors are created, which allow species to find new habitat and populations. Besides, the high carbon sequestration rate of the Atlantic forest, makes it a key player in the fight against global warming. Furthermore, seed collection, tree nurseries and planting activities are under the management of local people. They are empowered and earning a fair living while restoring their native forest.

Why is it awesome ?


You are helping endangered species find new habitat and a life-partner (love is not only in the air, it’s also in the trees ;-) ).You are also empowering women who work in the tree-nurseries and you are giving locals the possibility of following trainings in plant propagation, which allows them to earn an extra source of income to support their family.

Where does the magic happens ?
