One Tree Planted, AMOVALE
Atlantic Rainforests are the most threatened rainforest type of Brazil – it has been estimated that only 7% of the former extant of this forest type remain. This ecosystem contains 23,000 plant species – the most biodiverse on the planet. Slash and burn agriculture, ranching, forest clear-cutting for timber, and urban development are mostly to blame for loss of this forest type.
Federal Government and Private Easements
We are working with the NGO Amovale to build from their current tree planting rate of 10-30,000 trees per year to 200,000 trees per year. We are working to build a more efficient logistical system and connecting to communities to funders to scale up reforestation capacity in this region.
