Brazil celebrated Arbor Day today by launching an initiative to restore forests in degraded ecosystems in the Caatinga, a unique Brazilian biome in the northeast of the country.
The Caatinga Association on Wednesday unveiled the Restaura Caatinga project, which aims to disseminate technical knowledge, train seed collectors, and restore forests in damaged ecosystems, as well as encourage the population to think about the importance of forests for living things.
