BioCarbon’s investment in the Brazil Nut Rainforest Community Project brings together hundreds of local families harvesting Brazil nuts in the Peruvian Amazon. Through investment from the project, communities are provided with improved land tenure, nuts can be sustainably harvested, processed and sold directly to international markets, and over 300,000 hectares of threatened valuable rainforest are protected from conversion to ranching and agriculture.
