Liquidnet For Good

Replanting Rainforest in Sumatra, Indonesia
We are working to restore vital orangutan habitat that has been destroyed by illegal oil palm plantations within the Gunung Leuser National Park. We're seeing some really exciting results, with lots of wildlife starting to return to the restored areas of forest - including orangutans, elephants, sun bears, gibbons, leopard cats and many endangered bird species. We work with the local people, empowering, educating and encouraging them to become guardians of their forests and wildlife.
Turning carbon footprints into healthy soils
We incorporate charcoal (biochar) into soils, improving fertility (nutrient-retaining capacity), and in so doing create a stable carbon sink in which CO2 is sequestered for hundreds of years
Plant 10,000 trees to grow resilience in Amhara
In Ethiopian district of Machakel, a mere 8.61% of the land area is covered by forest. This project aims to tackle unsustainable use of land and forest resources and make local communities more resilient to the periodic droughts that precipitate famines. Villagers are at the heart of our efforts to combat soil degradation. Our strategy involves planting indigenous trees on community land, gullies, river banks and farmlands, and planting fruit and timber trees on farms.
Sea Turtle Conservation & Environmental Education
Since 2005, our sea turtle conservation program has worked with international volunteers and local communities to protect sea turtles from poaching. The program has been able to discourage poachers and reduce nests loss in a 90%. In 2017, our project worked together with the Osa Foundation, who has been protecting a remote beach in Rincon de Osa. This year the foundation was not going to be able to continue its work, so we teamed up to do it, so we teamed up to do it together.
Multicultural Cooperation for Fruit Tree Planting
For 5 years, the Jewish Community of Marrakech will offer the use of arable land for HAF to build a nursery on which to raise 80-120,000 fruit tree saplings and train village representatives in arboriculture. In the 2nd and 5th years, the trees will be donated to each household of the surrounding disadvantaged villages and by 6-8 years later, the fruit yields will at least double the income of those rural communities, economically and environmentally benefiting 10,000 people.
