Preserving Amazonian rainforest in Brazil
(Rmdlt Portel - Para REDD Project)
The Amazon is home to 10% of all species on earth and is constantly facing the threat of deforestation due to logging, squatting and attempts to implement pastures. This project focuses on managing and protecting the land, turning it into a “private conservation reserve”.
By protecting the land, it promotes biodiversity conservation. The Para REDD zone projects protect numerous critically endangered mammals, birds, reptiles and fish. Our forests play a huge part in carbon capturing as they convert CO2 into oxygen. By protecting them from being destroyed, we increase the amount of carbon removed from the atmosphere.
Jobs are created in forest management and biodiversity monitoring for local community members.
