Help Stabilize the World’s Climate
Brazil’s Atlantic Forest – one of the biggest tropical forests in the world – and the Cerrado hold vast amounts of carbon dioxide and act as a cooling system for the Earth; they help stabilize the global climate and fight climate change.
Tropical rainforests are a world like none other; and their importance to the global ecosystem and human existence is paramount. Unparalleled in terms of their biological diversity, tropical rainforests are a natural reservoir of genetic diversity which offers a rich source of medicinal plants, high-yield foods, and a myriad of other useful forest products. They are an important habitat for migratory animals and sustain as much as 50 percent of the species on Earth, as well as a number of diverse and unique indigenous cultures.
Tropical rainforests, like so many other natural places, are a scarce resource in the 21st century. The vast swaths of forest, swamp, desert, and savanna that carpeted Earth’s land surface a mere five generations ago have been reduced to scattered fragments; today, more than two-thirds of the world’s tropical rainforests exist as fragmented remnants. Today around 13 percent of Earth’s land is covered with tropical forests (about 2 billion hectares or 7.7 million square miles), of which much consists of tropical rainforest. The largest unbroken stretch of rainforest is found in the Amazon river basin of South America. Nearly two-thirds of this forest lies in Brazil, which holds about one-third of the world’s remaining tropical rainforests.
The Nature Conservancy is working to promote large scale restoration in these two crucial forests – essential not only to the survival of a vast array of plant and animal species, but also to the people of Brazil – providing carbon sequestration, storage and filtering of water, protection against floods and economic opportunities to local communities.
