You can help African Forest by supporting the below campaigns
Forests in Africa fulfil many roles. They provide renewable raw materials and energy, they help to maintain biological diversity, protect land and water resources, provide recreation facilities and improve air quality.
In combating climate change, forests have been solid contributors to the mitigation of this global threat. They regulate ecosystems, protect biodiversity and play an integral part in the carbon cycle.
Global Tree Campaign
Since 2019 African forest has been working tirelessly on rescuing endemic endangered indigenous trees as part of the Global Tree Campaign, which is dedicated to saving the world’s threatened tree and shrub species.
To date, African Forest has been working in Kwale County mapping endemic, threatened and endangered trees and shrubs found in the Shimba Hills. So far we have successfully geotagged, harvested cuttings and propagated seeds and have been able to grow 2000 seedlings.
By donating you help African Forest continue to find, protect and propagate endangered tree species.
Leave your Mark,
grow a tree
African forest has been working tirelessly on rescuing endemic endangered indigenous trees. Over the last three years, we have successfully geotagged, harvested seeds and propagated saplings. So far we have found seven vulnerable and two critically endangered tree species on the IUCN red list in Shimba hills forest reserve and adjacent forest blocks.
African Forest has created sanctuaries for endangered and at-risk tree species in various locations and continues to nurture and care for the seedlings.
