We are based on the region were once stood Brazil’s Atlantic rain forest.
The Atlantic Forest region tops the world in statistics of habitat loss, with over 93 percent of the original range of the forest already gone, and much of the remaining are in small fragments, and it’s majority in decrepitude.
The fragments of the original Atlantic Forest continues to deteriorate due to illegal logging, plant and animal poaching.
Approximately twelve years ago, The Conservation International selected the Atlantic Forest as one of its top priority biodiversity hotspots worldwide.
The Atlantic Forest hotspot is arguably the most devastated and most highly threatened ecosystem on the planet.
Some 3,000 plant species, 35 mammals, and 104 birds species are considered threatened, and close to 70 percent of all Brazilians live within the original distribution of the Atlantic Forest, and three of the largest urban centers of the continent are also located here.
