Biodiversity conservation

Spontaneous cactus
Spontaneous cactus

This project began in 2014 and since then your support has:

  • Restored and protected 862ha that will become wildlife corridors connecting remaining patches of forests. That’s over 1,000 football pitches and almost 1.8 million trees being regenerated!
  • Regenerated over 125 species of tree
  • Supported local community nurseries providing employment
  • Benefited over 840 families involved in: nurseries, planting and replanting, fencing, transportation, maintenance, weeding, training, monitoring, environmental education as well as scientific surveys.

Thank you for all your support!

Biodiversity conservation

At least 100 native species are planted across our restoration sites and we aim for at least 40 native species in each restoration site. 2018 monitoring data shows over 125 species present in the total area and the additional non-planted species are from natural regeneration.

This cactus is a spontaneous regeneration in our planting site - local nurseries didn't produce this species and we didn't plant it! It indicates that animals who consume this species' edible fruits have been visiting. This item was probably pollinated by bats, who are attracted by the strong-smelling white flowers.

Thank you!
