Register to read the introduction… It was later dropped to 25% since then more than one million hectares have been approved for reforestation. By law, at least 1% of the area, had to be reforested with native species. Recently in 1972, the regulation was increased to 25% within the Araucaria region. As long as this programme remains affective the reforestation will continue. During the deforestation in Brazil, the golden -headed lion has been forced to move and congregate in only certain areas. If reforestation is working which it seems to be there have been 450,000 trees planted since 2009. As for the getting people involved it is catching on in the Brazilian communities, and making major progress. The only drawbacks are the amount of time that it takes for the trees to grow which is normally twenty years, and the continued support of the communities. Under current Brazilian law, native forests must cover a portion of private land owners property. Therefore there will always be a percentage of trees …show more content…
To do this you would need the support of the Brazilian law makers; the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). the Guaraquecaba Climate Action Project - Reforestation and Forest Enhancement; the Sociedada de Pesquisa em Vida Selvagem e Educaao Ambient (SPVS); the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and the public and media. The Brazilian law makers can take on the responsibility of getting everything under way. The cost will be of great proportions, this can be funded by donations, grants, fundraisers, and the greatest portion would come from the Brazilian people themselves. There should be a meeting of the minds, involving all agencies, here decisions will be made of where to start the process. The funding should be the first part of the process. After receiving the funding an area should be chosen, this should be one of the worst areas they are dealing with. Then where to acquire the trees, and the hiring of the people that will be planting them. With this solution there can be benefits from the employment side, and the fact that endangered species such as the golden-headed lion, will again have there habitat renewed for them. Then they will be able to get off the endangered list for good. The more trees that are planted the better the air quality will be. So therefore the population will also get great benefits for their sacrifices.
