We, at YADA foundation along with our project partners Nature Conservation Centre, have been overwhelmed by the generous support the Revive the 1000 Hectares of the Mugla Sweetgum Forest project has received in recent
months. With just over $3,000 left to raise towards our $7,500 goal, we are well on our way to making a impact in the preservation of the Mugla Sweetgum forest, the only sweetgum forest in the world.
Our current activities are focused on environmental education, tree planting preparations, and livelihood activities that shift dependence from forest resources. Slowly, by raising awareness and conducting hands on activities with the local community, we make headway on regrowing a portion of the sweetgum forest and saving it for future generations.
Since the beginning of our work, in collaboration with the Ministry of Forestry and Water, we have reforested over 32 acres of forest, with an extremely high seedling survival rate of 70%! Our corridor program works to return the health of the vastly-reduced sweetgum forest to a larger area, one tree planted, saves five more.
Thank you for so generously donating to this project to conserve the sweetgum forest. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support we have received and are grateful for this opportunity to partner with GlobalGiving to mobilize a network of people who so passionately care about the future of the earth and the people who call it home.
I will leave you withpictures from a Student excursion:
