Selfies in the forest

Every tree we plant helps to cool our earth.

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.

Click here to browse through the photos and explore this beautiful part of the world. The site will be updated regularly so make sure to check back in the near future!

Our favourite trees: Araucaria species

It’s summer in the Atlantic Forest. As thousands of birds, animals and insects begin their nightshift, an ancient Araucaria angustifolia pierces the skies above. Its evergreen limbs offer year-round shelter to wildlife below, stretching as high as 40 metres in a perfect star-shaped symmetry that remains unchanged for over 250 million years.
