The future of the jaguar in the Atlantic Forest

The Atlantic Forest of Brazil, where WeForest is restoring and reconnecting patches of forest, is home to one of South America’s most charismatic species: the jaguar (Panthera onca).

Brazil nurseries are in full swing

The community-based nurseries in Pontal do Paranapanema are working intensively to produce the thousands of seedlings that will be used in the next areas scheduled for reforestation.

Women in charge

Across all WeForest projects women are empowered through income generation and entrepreneurship.
