The region

The Mata Atlântica

There are three major ecological systems in Brazil: the tropical rainforest of the Amazon region in the north, the Cerrado in central Brazil and the Mata Atlantica, the rainforest south of the equator along the Atlantic coast.

The Mata Atlantica is not only the oldest region with the most species, but also the most endangered area. After centuries of exploitation by men only 5% of the original area are still covered with the original vegetation.

The negative effects of this can be seen here most clearly.
