During the first half of 2017, we collected around 12,000 seeds within a scientific research scheme from concessions in different parts of Madre de Dios, and were able to plant around 8000 of them. The seeds are germinating and we are excited to see what the final rates will be and to know how many seedlings we will be able to plant back. With this data and with some of the described collaborations, we will have an understanding of costs and benefits of Brazil-nut forest enrichment. With all these approaches, we want to answer to questions like: how is it possible to enrich Brazil nut forests? What are the challenges and the solutions? Is it important to take into consideration where the seeds come from? Is the current human impact in the forest affecting the reproduction of Brazil nut stands?
