A short book list to get you going

Very little has been written specifically about the Atlantic Rainforest, but “With Broadax and Firebrand” by Warren Dean is a fascinating history of 12,000 years of the Atlantic Rainforest, focusing on the rapid destruction of the past sixty years. Read this to get a feel for the uniqueness and importance of our forest. Another important work is Galindo-Leal’s “The Atlantic Forest of South America.”

Interested in the flora and fauna? Check out “Tropical Nature” by Adrian Forsyth & Ken Miyata, a very clearly written guide for non-biologists describing some of the of the rainforest plants, insects and animals, and giving a clear idea of their complex interrelationships.

Forest Futures: Adopt a Plot

Forest Futures

Help us regenerate the rainforest

FFlogo-143x127Iracambi’s mandate is saving forests, changing lives. We’ve started by conserving sections of Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest, one of the world’s richest areas of biodiversity, teeming with rare animals and plants many of which are found nowhere else on earth. With fragile soils and steep slopes, the land is quickly eroded and every year farmers need to clear more forest to make their agriculture viable.

Iracambi is researching, testing and campaigning for ways to make the forest conservation provide an income for landowners, but the reality is that it is complicated and will take years to implement on a large scale. In the meantime, we are also buying unused forest land, and land adjoining forest fragments, to reforest and protect.These are our Forest Futures.
