Tatiana is a Forestry Engineer, Researcher and Ranger fighting to save thousand-year old “mother trees” of the Amazon rainforest from illegal logging.
Tatiana can improve her communication abilities and streamline her efforts to protect the threatened Amazon rainforest.
Gold mining and expansive agricultural projects have long threatened the Amazon rainforest. With the creation of the Interoceanic highway there has also been a spike in illegal logging. A lack of patrolling officers and governmental authorities have left the forest vulnerable. The Shihuahuaco trees, also known as the “mother trees”, have roots that stretch several kilometers, take 700 years to grow a meter in diameter and are not only integral to the ecosystems of the Amazon but they also aid our fight against climate change by absorbing upwards of 40-50 tons of carbon dioxide.
