THE REFUGEE JATOBÁ


In 2021, illegal deforestation of the Amazon Forest reached its worst level in a decade. More than 10 thousand km2 of native forest were devastated. At this rate, in the next 15 years, we may reach the point of no return, when the tropical forest can no longer regenerate and become a savanna. 

To escape the war against deforestation, for the first time in history, an Amazon Tree filed an official request for refuge before Brazil's foreign embassies.
