The mission of this project is to reforest 100 hectares of native species of trees by implementing agroforestry generating thus economic value for the families of the local community, demonstrating that it is possible to obtain resources through said activity, and avoiding further deforestation in this area of the Amazon.
The fight against deforestation of the Amazon and promoting its reforestation of affected areas is only possible through the application of joint work with local communities. For this reason, this project goes beyond the task of reforestation through the planting of trees. The project also focuses on working and promoting agroforestry with the local community as a method of obtaining resources that protected and restored forests can offer.
A clear example of the benefits of this project through agroforestry is the plantation of Aniba rosaeodora, a threatened species in certain territories, which is in great demand due to its use in the cosmetics and perfume industry.
Objectives of this project:
- CO2 sequestration by the native species to be reforested.
- Generation of economic resources for families involved in the agroforestry implementation process.
There are many environmental solutions that the restoration of the Amazon offers, it should be noted among the most important; are the sequestration of CO2, preservation of biodiversity including native fauna, improvement in the quality of the soil, drinking water, etc.
Native species reforested in the Uatumã reserve:
Copaifera langsdorffii, Carapa guianensis, Aniba rosaeodora, Artocarpus heterophyllus, Handroanthus, Theobroma grandiflorum; Dipteryx odorata, Euterpe oleracea
