PROJECT: Forests of the future – Reforestation and ecosystem restoration
LOCATION OF IMPACT: Brazil Amazon Rainforest
PROJECT COST: £10,000
The Atlantic Forest is an incredibly diverse and important ecosystem. It has lost 92% of its original forest cover and is home to endangered species of wildlife and trees. The deforestation has resulted in rivers and springs running dry. They’re vital for local communities who rely on the water for drinking and growing crops.
Our objective is to reforest the area in the Mantiqueira region, bring the springs back to life, and to recover rare tree species, native fruits, palm trees, hard trees and trees that are missing in the forests and degraded lands. This will also create habitats for wildlife and pollinators including bees.
