The couple, Sebastião Salgado and wife Lélia, successfully funded a forestry rebuild. A near countless number of animals and plant species have returned to the area.
Thanks to the belief of two people and an entire team, this once-upon-a-time forest is now a living thriving forest at this time.
The team created a nursey that can hold 700,000 plants at one time. This allows them to plant up to 1,000,000 plants per year. Talk about superpower abilities.
These two people along with their team were able to bring back this forest and plant 1,000,000 plants a year!
Efforts like these do not go unnoticed. Volunteers from all over the world come and help the project plant trees and do other statistical tasks.
What once was desert land 20 years ago, today is a lush green forested area, filled with wildlife that was on the brink of extinction.
Instituto Terra is setting an example for reforestation projects all around the world. Giving hope to the ones being built today in 2020.
As inspiration for other projects, these photos were taken in and before 2016. The project has come a long way in 4 years.
So what are you waiting for? Go out and plant your own forest.
