WeForest – Brazil

Initiative Overview

Each WeForest project makes earth cooler and empowers communities. In Brazil, WeForest is restoring habitat connectivity with forest corridors. The project aims to combat the loss of forest cover and conserve this biodiversity hotspot. Biodiversity in the Atlantic Forest is under increasing threat from widespread deforestation. 

Today, a mere 7% of the forest still stands. Despite its diminished size it retains a large share of the world’s species. The Atlantic Forest is recognised as a global conservation priority.
