Abstract

Sustainability is a target that involves many socio-ecological questions and depends sometimes of opportunities and combine different initiatives. This can be especially difficult in regions with high biodiversity scores, mega cities and high level of human populations, and an intense and long-standing land use. Here we show how a mega trail, named Atlantic Forest Trail, within the Brazilian Atlantic Forest can join protection of biodiversity and sustainable tourism through a 4,270 km corridor connecting Protected Areas and crossing a variety of landscapes. Further, we show some initiatives of ongoing biodiversity monitoring, and an analysis of ecological restoration in private lands that can be applied in many regions to improve habitat connectivity for both biodiversity and human use.

Methods

The dataset was collected, and data compiled, from two sources: homepages and references of published articles and reports.
