The Atlantic Forest in Brazil is one of the most biodiverse habitats on the planet.
The forest is home to 7% of the world’s species with over half of them found nowhere else in the world. Large areas of forest have been cut down to make way for intensive farmland, and now only 6% of the forest remains, split into fragmented areas.
Each hectare of mature, healthy forest can sequester hundreds of tonnes of CO2, meaning the destruction of the Atlantic Forest does not only threaten its inhabitants but also worsens the effects of climate change for the entire planet.
