@dicapriofdn - The Rondonia region of Brazil originally had over 200,000 km2 of rainforest but has become one of the most deforested places in the Amazon. Side by side images shows C. 2006 to 2018. #10YearChallenge
DiCaprio’s foundation, which focuses on environmental preservation, also highlighted deforestation as their contribution to the 10-Year Challenge. Striking aerial images of Brazil’s Rondonia region shows the incredible difference in the Amazon rainforest over the course of a decade—and not for the better.
For her part, Gisele Bündchen paid homage to a project near and dear to her heart. She showed off the incredible progress her Agua Limpa Project has made in her native country of Brazil. After planting 40,000 trees on a river bank, the project has helped improve water quality and created a wildlife corridor since it began in 2009. Her post is a hopeful glimpse of what can happen when people take action.
