90 percent of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest is gone from the Earth.
Unplanned development along the coast; growing cities; illegal logging and unsustainable agriculture; and ranching practices have all led to the Atlantic Forest’s decline. And Brazil’s Cerrado – the most biologically diverse savanna in the world and home to the most important sources of freshwater for the people of Brazil – is at risk from increased development.
Without these important habitats, 130 million people in Brazil will be without clean water and hydro-energy—and all of us will lose a vital climate regulator for our planet. We need your help now to protect the Atlantic Forest and Cerrado before they degrade even further.
