The Amazon Rainforest in Colombia is the office for Angelica Diaz-Pulido and her team of researchers.

Despite Colombia signing the “zero deforestation in the Amazon by 2020” agreement  in 2008  and working with REDD+ a year later, it has suffered some of the highest deforestation rates in the Amazon. Reasons for this include an expansion of agriculture, new settlements of people and wildfires.

  

In part because of funding from MyTrees supporters, together with Conservation International, Angelica and her team of biologists are helping to monitor and protect the rainforest. They’re harnessing new satellite and camera technology to help spot illegal logging before it happens, and therefore stop millions of tons of carbon getting into the atmosphere. 🌎. 

 

They do this for everyone on the planet. As Angelica says, “Without nature, we cannot survive as a species.” Watch the video to find out more!
