Doing our bit

How we are doing our bit to help save the planet.

The Atlantic Forest, also known as Mata Atlantica, once spanned 130 million hectares across Brazil. Now, this tropical rainforest ecosystem covers only about 12% of its original area and is home to more than half of the country’s population. Centuries of deforestation for timber, sugar cane, coffee, cattle ranching, and urban sprawl have contributed to its current state. Nearly all of the remaining forest is in western São Paulo State, including the Mooro do Diablo State Park, the Black Lion Tamarin Ecological Station, and many smaller forest fragments.

One Tree Planted and their partners in Brazil are working to reconnect the Morro do Diablo State Park and the Black Lion Tamarin Ecological station, two core areas of the Upper Parana Atlantic Rainforest Biosphere Reserve. This will be Brazil’s largest reforestation corridor and served as a guide for future projects in the region. It will create 60,000 ha of connected forest for endemic and endangered species and improve the livelihoods of 1,000 families. And from an ecological standpoint, it will help maintain viable populations of flora and fauna and mitigate harmful edge effects like exposure to light and wind, diseases, and invasive species.

To maximize the impact of your donation, our partner will plant over 100 native species, including Gochnatia polymorpha, Guarea guidonea, Tapirira guianensis, Inga striata, Inga laurina, Inga uruguensis, Pera glabrata, Croton floribundus, Syagrus romanzoffiana, Acacia polyphylla, Terminalia glabrescens, Albizzia niopoides, Anadenanthera colubrina cebil.
