Rampant deforestation is threatening Uganda’s natural forests. Wildlife, biodiversity and forest ecosystems are under immense pressure. In this episode, I take you on my journey through Uganda, as I monitor and learn from four of our tree-planting partners.
In Thailand, we are supporting rubber farmers to transform their monocultures into sustainable agroforestry rubber farms.
Even though we've long known that forests and trees have been threatened, they are still not getting the attention they deserve.
Your trees in Nigeria are providing opportunities for inclusive rural development.
Your trees in Guatemala are inspiring and empowering communities to protect nearby forests.
In Sudan, we are working with women-led groups to grow gum arabic trees. These trees will not only help reduce droughts and desertification but also increase the income of thousands of Sudanese women.
Our UK project improves access to nature by working with local organizations to plant thousands of trees on and around hospital grounds.
The increasing demand for cocoa is one of the main drivers of deforestation in many West African countries.
While we’re all familiar with the Amazon, the Pantanal is a smaller and lesser known area, but it is a crucial spot in terms of biodiversity, and it is severely under threat.
Planting trees on and around farms has many benefits. In rural Rwanda, your trees prevent erosion, increase soil fertility and water retention, and ultimately lead to higher, more predictable yields.
In Bolivia, we plant trees in and around farms. This helps farmers adapt to challenging and unstable climatic conditions, thereby increasing their yields and incomes.
In the United States, your trees help restore the watershed in the Withlacoochee State Forest while protecting the habitats of numerous wildlife species.
