News about Ranger Antonio
Reserve ranger: Antonio Teixeira Nunes
Partner organisation: Reserva Ecológica de Guapi Assu (REGUA)
Passionate about helping plant trees within the Guapi Assu Reserve, ranger Antonio is working to improve this Atlantic Rainforest habitat for wildlife.
Many years ago this nature reserve was farmland, so a lot of its pristine forest was destroyed to grow crops and for cattle to graze.
Antonio said: “Becoming a ranger has been a very positive step in my life; I feel more respected by my fellow villagers and by my own family. My job is very important because I am directly contributing to the protection of the forest.”
