In this July 7, 2012 photo released by the Golden Lion Tamarin Association (AMLD), shows a tree nursery of native species saplings in the Atlantic Forest region of Silva Jardim, in Brazil's state of Rio de Janeiro. The state promise to plant 24 million trees would help further restore the swath of species-rich Atlantic forest that once covered much of Brazil's coast and ensure that the golden lion tamarin population, once near extinction, has enough room to thrive.
