RAINFOREST

Jatoba
Hymenaea courbaril, the Jatobá is a tree native to Brazil. It can reach a height of around 40 meters and a diameter of 2 meters. It is considered sacred by the Indigenous people and is fundamental to the evolution and survival of animals and even to other trees.
Previously found in abundance throughout the Amazon, the Jatobá is now under double threat of extinction. As well as suffering at the hand of mega-exploitation of wood for many years, its specimens which were in protected areas also suffered from constant deforestation and fires.

The Amazon is home to:

75% of unique species of flora found globally.
More than 3,000 species of fish – the highest number of species of freshwater fish.
