Emergency fund for conservation areas extended until December

The Bio-Emergency Fund program, created in 2020 to guarantee the approximately 1,000 jobs of the more than 1,600 inspectors assigned to preserve biodiversity in the country's protected areas, has been extended to December of this year.

The plan, as part of efforts to combat the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the industry, also aims to ensure that the logging of endangered wildlife species and illegal logging of precious wood does not rise again to levels even higher than those reported in the recent past.

The information was recently published on the website of the Foundation for Biodiversity Conservation (Biofund) and also indicates that the fund was initially designed for a one-year period. However, due to the impact of the new coronavirus, which threatens to leave private reserves without revenue, its term has been extended.
