ABOUT

The Black Jaguar Foundation is a Dutch reforestation NGO that works to restore areas in the Cerrado and Amazon, two biomes in Brazil that are essential for the future of our planet.

Created in 2009, the BJF pursues one single mission, the construction of the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor, the longest biodiversity corridor in the world spanning 2600km and widths of up to 40km. This project could guarantee the survival of the Araguaia River, 80% of its surrounding lands have already been deforested and it is severely at risk of drying up by 2050 if nothing is done. The project is ambitious, The Corridor area is 10.4 million hectares, of this, approximately 2 million hectares will be restored with 2.4 billion trees.

THE PROJECT

The Corridor will be built through the reforestation of rural areas protected by law (eg Legal Reserve and Permanent Protection Area) and its subsequent integration with the remaining pockets of native forest along the river. This mosaic is able to guarantee the survival of fauna and flora, in addition to maintaining the region’s natural resources.

BJF’s role is to act as a catalyst for forest restoration, establishing partnerships with rural landowners and providing all the necessary inputs for environmental restoration, such as technical expertise, tools, financing, among others.

The Black Jaguar Foundation operates in a network and has a wide variety of technical partners who ensure we work to the highest possible standards. Among them: University of São Paulo (ESALQ / LERF), Bioflora, World Resource Institute, Aliança da Terra, Ibiraú Institute and Aliança for the Restoration of the Amazon Forest.

To deliver the project, The Black Jaguar Foundation counts on a large network of partners in Brazil and around the world. They include: HRH Princess Basma Bint Ali, Koen Vanmechelen, Nalden (Co-founder of WeTransfer), Scelta Mushrooms, Actiforce and Jaguar the Fresh Company.

The Black Jaguar is totally dependent on donations from individuals and companies.
