In this Brazilian Amazon REDD+ project, biodiversity plays a vital role. The Cikel area is part of the Amazon, the largest remaining rainforest on our planet. The Amazon is known for its amazing biodiversity; it contains 15% of all species. The Cikel area is home to some endangered species, such as the rare Ka’apori monkey, that rely on the forest for their survival.
The CIKEL Project is located in Para State, Brazil, where 63% of the Amazon Rainforest has already been lost. By using sustainable logging practices certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®, CIKEL will continue to avoid the deforestation of 27.4 thousand hectares of rainforest which would have been deforested had traditional logging practices been used. The company is also intensifying and improving its practices to support the sustainable social development, maintaining and improving the biodiversity monitoring at the RCC in the framework of FSC certification and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) activities.
