The Cristalino Ecological Foundation, in co-operation with the Alta Floresta municipality and with a number of complementary partners (Local Action for Biodiversity, Iclei-Local Governments for Sustainability, Latin America & Caribbean Secretariat, Institute of research and planning of Curitiba) is moving ahead enthusiastically with an initiative for the Portal da Amazônia project. It is an area rich in biodiversity, but at high risk, located on the southern borders of Amazonia where for decades unsustainable land use has caused the destruction of approximately 70% of the native forests. This reforestation and ecological defragmentation pilot project together with other recommended action is designed to reverse that trend and they propose a new model of urbanisation for Amazonia.
Keywords: Reforestation; defragmentation; restoration of ecological corridors
