Brazil

£1.00

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.
