The Atlantic Forests – Brazil

Once stretching 330 million acres, an area twice the size of Texas, the Atlantic Forest of Brazil is one of the world’s most extraordinary forests. And yet today, after hundreds of years of deforestation, only seven percent of this biological treasure remains.

Home to jaguars, tamarins and hundreds of bird species found nowhere else on Earth, the Atlantic Forest also provides important economic and health benefits to surrounding communities and cities, including the mega-cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
