Video: A paratrooper jumps with more than 100 million seeds in the Amazon

Famous Brazilian parachutist Luigi Cani dropped more than 100 million seeds of 27 native tree species from an airplane at an altitude of 14,000 feet into a deforested area of ​​the Amazon region.

The 300kg of seeds were transported in a biodegradable wooden box of more than 1m³.

Cani jumped when he reached 6,500 feet in the cleared area, “dived at 300 km/h, reached the box in free fall and released the seeds at the right height to ensure precise and even distribution”.

“The seeds have a germination rate of over 95% and do not require human intervention, so in a few years we will see the fruits of this unprecedented action”, told the athlete who performed the jump to the international press.
