We want to be an example to others and teach them about the importance of the environment, encourage people to live in a way that does not hurt the environment, discover new species by using our technology and support local rainforest communities to participate in this project. Rainforests are Earth’s oldest living ecosystem, diverse and complex homes for more than half of the world’s plant and animal species. Deforestation of tropical rainforests has a global impact through species extinction, the loss of important ecosystem services and renewable resources, and the reduction of carbon sinks. However, this destruction can be slowed, stopped, and in some cases even reversed.
The good news is there are a lot of people who want to save rainforests, and after researching all competition categories we concluded that because of that XPRIZE Rainforest is the most suitable for us.
