Brazil Nut Grove

nut-grove

    This natural grove of giant Brazil nut trees provides not only a nice snack for those willing to make the hike, it’s also an incredibly important component of the rainforest ecosystem. Brazil nut trees are unique in that they can only survive and flourish in intact, unlogged habitats. As such, Brazil nut harvesting provides a great resource that allows local populations to make a living without disrupting or damaging the forest.
