I was tuned into the World Resources Institute by our good friends at New Mexico Healthy Soil Working Group (and co-founder @Isabelle Jenniches) and found this great case study of Tijuca national Park in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It shows the benefits of regeneration:
1) improved water supplies to the city of Rio,
2) improved air quality for the city,
3) more diversity of species,
4) recreational opportunities for residents,
5) more habitat for wildlife
None of that may shock you, the reader. What came as a surprise to me is that it happened in the 1860's. Read more about that work by clicking or copying the link below.
