Poor awareness and conflicting debates on vegetation succession has led to their poor calibration as forest. Thus, a huge misconception in their unique ecosystem values, conservation need as well as trending degradations.

The wolf in North America is one of the most iconic species and despite of its ecological importance is one of the most threatened.

Brazil

My overall goal is, in conjunction with Xavante communities, to develop an FPIC. This proposal aims to promote discussions of such a tool and generate a draft.
