according to data released this week by the sos mata atlântica foundation and inpe (national institute for spatial research), the state of rio de janeiro remains at zero deforestation level for the atlantic forest.
It is worth remembering that the state was one of the champions in deforestation of this type of habitat in the not too distant past: between 2014 and 2015, 27 hectares were deforested.
just for the record, one hectare is an area equivalent to a football field.
this survey aims to alert authorities and landowners about the importance of protecting the atlantic forest and promoting forest recovery, since the country assumed a commitment, in the paris agreement of 2015, to restore 12 million hectares by 2030.
and more: brazil is also part of a pact for the regeneration of the atlantic forest that brings together several organizations, where the defined goal is 15 million hectares restored by 2050.
well, everyone on alert, after all this is our cause!
