Many ways to measure success

We’ve received some very impressive drone pictures of some of our restoration areas. They show very clearly the significant progress that has been made over the last two or three years. 

In as little as three years, this restored area in the north corridor’s Sao Paulo farm (above) has connected two large remaining fragments of the Atlantic Forest. The left image shows the area in September 2021 and the right in January 2023, now a 3km long stretch of green. It will provide a new migration route to help black lion tamarins, which are known to be present in the northerly fragment, to spread and thrive.

We’ve also got the first sound samples from our collaboration with Rainforest Connection (RFCx), in which 120 audio devices have been monitoring bird and animal species in sampling points in our restored areas, as well as in the existing forest fragments and agricultural areas. 

So far, the sounds of 178 species have been detected in the sampling sites: 166 birds, 8 frogs, 2 mammals and 2 insects, 4 of which are listed as threatened according to IUCN’s Red List. 

Analysis by RFCx shows that bird species richness was higher in forested and restoration sites than in farming sites, indicating that restoration sites are promoting a positive effect on biodiversity, providing breeding and foraging habitats, and/or connectivity stepping stones for a large portion of the bird community. This is very encouraging, suggesting that even though our restoration sites are still in the early stages of development, they are already functioning more like forest habitat than adjacent farmland, providing habitat to many species associated with protected forests. 

Thank you for making this possible!
