Supported Project: Connecting the Atlantic Forest Through Wildlife Corridors
The Green Spa Network Tree Planting Initiative will specifically support reforestation in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Restoring the forest is extremely vital to safeguard the remaining biodiversity and to combat the progressive loss of the world’s species. The high carbon sequestration potential of second-growth forests in the Latin American tropics means that the Atlantic Forest is a key player in the climate change agenda.
