In Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, our trees also provide habitat for a plethora of native fauna. This includes the tapir, a kind of South American terrestrial hippo, jaguars, ocelots, pumas and anteaters. The list goes on.
That’s why our project partner, IPE, has just launched an online map and photo library so that you can view photos of these animals in the forest (thanks to our camera traps!) and where they have been spotted.
These animals are moving through the forest corridors you are helping to plant, so we wanted to show you what that looks like.
Together we are making earth cooler, but our impacts are being felt all the way down to the individual, the individual jaguar or tapir, who is now able to move safely across the landscape. Thanks to our forest corridors in Pontal do Paranapanema, we can safeguard the future of the forest’s many animals in the face of habitat fragmentation, one of the greatest threats to biodiversity.
