The Floresta Atlântica is Brazil’s ‘other’ rainforest; however it is one of the most important eco-regions in the world and a biodiversity hotspot. Sadly it is one of the most threatened habitats on the planet with only around 8.5% of the original forest remaining. What is left is becoming increasingly fragmented and deforested.
The Reserva Serra Verde was created in 2010 and is a 4,200sqm area of pristine, rare Atlantic Rainforest.
The Friends of Serra Verde is a charitable trust established to help preserve this endangered environment through preservation, education and replanting.
As a friend of Serra Verde you will help us achieve our aims:
■ To protect the existing rainforest.
■ To increase the size of the reserve by buying up neighbouring areas of rainforest.
■ To make a small part of the reserve accessible to wheelchair users and local children.
■ To engage the local community in the importance of preserving the local habitat
