Since 1992, the Ecological Research Institute (IPÊ) has been working for the preservation of the Black Lion Tamarin, a threatened species from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Over the years, they have involved the community and the residents of the forest surroundings to promote the conservation of its fauna and flora. The “Corridors for Wildlife” project, which aims to reforest large areas of native Atlantic Forest, came from the interaction with the local community. The reforestation areas are designed to form ecological corridors, so that the animals can expand their habitat.
Forest recorded one of the phases of the project and produced a video with animation films that explain the concept of an ecological corridor. They spent four days in the field, in the Pontal do Paranapanema region, in the far west of São Paulo. The animation films were produced in motion design and contextualise the geography and challenges of the project. Here you can see the results of this work:
