Libertad del Sur Reforestation Project

Year Planted: 2009

Trees Planted: 70,000
Location: Paraguay

The Libertad del Sur Reforestation Project is located in Southeastern Paraguay. It is part of a prioritized river-forest conservation corridor between San Rafael Conservation Area and Paran river and is an important component of the Upper Paran Atlantic Forest. The Atlantic Forest has suffered the most impressive deforestation with less the 5% of the original forest cover remaining. The project will create a conservation corridor that will help to maintain the genetic flow between high biodiversity forests remnants in the Atlantic Forest.
