90% of Brazil’s Acre state is forested, but current rates of destruction mean by 2030 this could decline to 65%. This collection of three projects aims to prevent deforestation across 105,000 hectares of pristine rainforest in the Amazon basin, protecting some of the world’s most biodiverse habitats. Tropical forests are the most biodiverse habitats on Earth, home to 70% of the Earth's species of plants and animals. The projects work with communities and local groups to help protect ecosystem services while providing alternative models of economic development which avoid the destruction of the forest.
Tons of carbon reduced each year
Hectares of land are protected
