Ecotrend Ecologics Supports ARC in Acquiring 80 Hectares of Amazonian Land for Protection
June 26, 2023
The Amazon Forest is incredibly rich in biodiversity and home to many important species. Many plants and animals that inhabit the Amazon Forest are increasingly at risk of extinction due to activities like logging.
Amazon Rainforest Conservancy(ARC) was established in 2014 with the mission to protect, conserve, and restore threatened tropical rainforest habitats, species, and ecosystems in the Peruvian Amazon. They’ve launched two main projects:
The Lower Amazon Basin Project and the Cloud Forest Basin Project. The Lower Amazon Basin Project comprises a 616-hectare Brazil nut concession home to 100 Brazil nut trees. These trees are important carbon sinks and provide a sustainable source of income for local communities through the annual Brazil nut harvest.
