Building an ecological corridor in a biodiversity hotspot

The Serra do Mar Corridor, stretching between Paraná, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, includes the largest and best-preserved contiguous stretch of the Atlantic Forest. The project aims to restore land within this corridor that has suffered from centuries of deforestation and help create an ecological corridor between the forest’s two largest continuums. 

To date, the project has restored 70 hectares, and additional 400 hectares will be restored in 2024.

Benefits go beyond carbon

This project will also support the environment, biodiversity, and local communities, including: 

  • Enhancing ecosystem services: situated in the Guandu River hydrographic region upstream from Rio de Janeiro, Águas da Mata Atlântica enhances water quality and accessibility for an estimated 10 million people.
  • Protecting a biodiversity hotspot: located in one of the world’s most biodiverse biomes, the project connects disparate patches of forest, creating strategic ecological corridors that enable animals to move between mature forests.
  • Developing a restorative green economy: landowners, large & small, participate at no cost and benefit through environmental service payments, local schools are engaged through forest management classes, and jobs are created through tree planting and project logistics.
