🔆In Brazil, this pair planted 2 million trees in 18 years, bringing back 172 species of birds, 33 mammals, 15 amphibians, 15 reptiles and 293 plant species.
The whole world should know them. These are Lélia Wanick and Sebastian Salgado.
The couple decided to found the Terra Institute, a small organization that planted 2 million plants and revived the forest.
“There is only one creature that can convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, and that is a tree.” We need to replant the forests. ”
With only local plants, the couple rebuilt the entire ecosystem from scratch and the area flourished significantly, allowing the fauna to return; thanks to their work, Lélia and Sebastião saved dozens of endangered species.
“The earth was as sad as I was, everything was destroyed. Then my wife got a fantastic idea to replant this forest: all insects, fish and birds returned, and thanks to the new growth of the trees, I was born again. ” #sustainability #linkedin
