The widespread destruction of Atlantic Forest is a biological disaster and preventing more loss of the rainforest is a priority for World Land Trust (WLT).

The Atlantic Forest, also called Mata Atlântica, is one of the most important ecoregions in the world and a biodiversity hotspot. However, due to the impact of logging and the expansion of agriculture only 7 per cent of the original forest remains. That which remains is becoming increasingly fragmented.

WLT’s special appeal will help preserve one of the remaining fragments of Atlantic Forest at Guapi Assu.
