Protect the Atlantic Rainforest & Yellow-breasted Capuchin
Help purchase and protect the world's most threatened rainforest.
The Brazilian Atlantic Forest is one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world, and contains the highest levels of biological diversity in Brazil. The threatened jaguar lives here, alongside twelve primate species - seven of which exist nowhere else on Earth. In addition, there are numerous species still new to science, including birds, frogs, and more than a thousand new moth species.
In the Serra Bonita Mountain Range, part of this incredible forest system, we have a unique opportunity to purchase and protect 333 acres of primary forest cover, expanding the Serra Bonita Reserve. This reserve is a special place, where pumas roam, marmosets gambol, and the critically endangered yellow-breasted capuchin monkey has actually increased its population. These little monkeys are frequently seen around the research center and lodge, as well as by rangers in other parts of the reserve.
Expanding this extraordinary reserve will mitigate external threats and continue to ensure that this critically endangered capuchin, and the other creatures that make this ecosystem home, have a chance at a future.
You can help protect some of the world's most threatened rainforest and its inhabitants. Your donation will fund the purchase of these acres in Brazil to expand the Serra Bonita Reserve.
Rainforest Trust (formerly World Land Trust-US) is proud to have saved over 7 million acres of endangered habitats in 15 countries and 65 sites since its inception in 1989. Their proven conservation approach and established network of dedicated local conservation organizations allow them to identify key rainforest sites containing the last populations of endangered wildlife under imminent threat. Rainforest Trust moves swiftly to purchase and protect these biodiversity treasures permanently throughout Central and South America. Their effective model empowers indigenous communities and local partners to steward their own lands. Through this stewardship, as well as education, training, and economic stimulants like eco-tourism for the indigenous people, Rainforest Trust is ensuring the lands they save are securing a rich and more diverse future for all life on earth.
