Challenge

The Philippines only has 22.93% forest cover left and continues to lose thousands of hectares of forest annually. In the protected area of Mounts Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape, home to over 400 species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects, declining forest cover is greatly affecting the wildlife. Species that can only be found in the Philippines are losing their homes like the critically endangered Philippine Eagle who was last seen in the area almost 30 years ago.

Solution

By planting 1,250 seedlings or 1 hectare of native tree species, our project will work to restore the forests in the protected landscape. This will be done by working with communities and the local government to plant and protect native trees and develop sustainable livelihoods. We will prepare the restoration sites and seedlings, maintain and monitor the tree planting areas, provide livelihood and skills training programs for our partner communities and raise awareness about our unique species.

Long-Term Impact

Aside from reviving the life support system of the forest, native trees also ensure the flourishing of Philippine biodiversity. And since the trees will be planted on conservation lands, longevity is secured. Endangered wildlife will have a home, which will help ensure their steady population growth and bring back species lost to the area like the Philippine Eagle. Community organizations also benefit from taking care of seedlings as a skill they can pass on to future generations.
