The Atlantic forest, the Mata Atlântica, originally covered large parts of Brazil. It is less high than the rainforest and extremely rich in species, as the light of the sun gets through to the ground. Today, 87% of it is deforested. In Caúna we try to reforest it. More than 100’000 precious wood and Mata trees have already been planted. We are also endeavouring to put the beautiful river course of the adjacent Rio Santo Antônio Grande under sustainable protection.
