We're getting excited about bringing back the forest!
By Lucy Radford | Fundraising and Communications Officer
How we plant a rainforest
We're really excited to bring you the first report from this project, especially as it is going so well! Over on the Rainforest Home appeal page on our website, you can see that the campaign totaliser is now standing at a very healthy 57% of our final target. This is down to people like you, who care about the future of orangutans and their forests. Thank you.
We have until the end of February 2019 to raise the rest of the funds, and we are optimistic - we know that with our supporters behind us, we can make this happen! With this in mind, we are starting to think ahead to restoring the forest once the land purchase is complete. The first thing we will need to do is to clear the land of oil palm trees, using chainsaws to cut them down as quickly as possible. This will make room to build a tree nursery, so our restoration experts can start preparing compost and collecting seeds from the forest to begin the process of nurturing new trees.
You can help us make sure we reach this stage. Tomorrow, 27th November, is Giving Tuesday. Any donation made to us that day will be matched by Global Giving from their Giving Tuesday match fund, so your impact will be even bigger than usual. If you are able to, please give to our project on Giving Tuesday, and share the project with everyone you know. We can make this happen together.
How the plantation currently looks
We can't wait to get to this stage of the project!
