Reforesting the World
When it comes to climate change, our message is clear: native woods and trees are one of the best ways to tackle the climate crisis which is why we have selected Madagascar to start a new forest and plant hundreds of native trees every month.
Madagascar is an island country in the Indian Ocean, approximately 400 kilometres off the coast of East Africa. The country is considered a biodiversity hotspot, and over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth.
In recent years, vast areas of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and diminishing local people’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are also gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea.
Why are trees important to the environment?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.
Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Have you ever taken an Aspirin? It comes from the bark of a tree!
Help lock up carbon with a donation
Our promise is simple, for every £1 received in donations – as well as guaranteeing that 100% of the funds will go to the projects – we will plant 1 native tree in Madagascar.
