My job, my life!
You did something really to improve the planet?

The deforestation in Brazil has been constant. Data based on satellite surveys, indicate that the Amazon lost until 2007, about 700 thousand km2 of forest (18% of the region).

In timber extraction, the annual production is around 40 million cubic meters, and 24.6 million to sawmill and lamination and other 15.6 million for production of coal for industry iron-iron. It is estimated that the illegal timber production in the Brazilian Amazon reaches 80%. The government acknowledges that at least 63% of the harvested wood has no legal authorization. For each tree toppled illegally, other 27 are damaged. It is estimated that in addition to the 17% already cleared, another 20 to 30% of the area of forest have been affected by selective cutting illegal. More than 50% of the supply of timber industry comes from deforestation. 

Far these exorbitant figures, I have a project that produces monthly 300 seedlings of the species IPE ROXO and CEREJEIRA, for reforestation. These seedlings are distributed free to students from rural schools, because the intention is to reforestation and awareness of the terrible consequences that deforestation can cause.

I have the intention to achieve the production of 10 thousand seedlings per month, but I need help through contributions, because the cost is too high for me to bear alone.

In the coming days I will create a photo album of the project, for everyone to see.
