Brazil Forest Conservation Project

Brazil Nuts Concessions conservation project in the Madre De Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon.
This project projects around 300,000 hectares of land, slightly smaller than the state of Rhode Island!
Native to the Amazon rainforest, Brazil nuts can only be harvested in the wild.


The Hoatzin and the Ocelot are among the many species found in this rainforest.
