Helen Dixon outlines the environmental value of tree planting
Working with communities to conserve cranes and protect wetlands as an important habitat to cranes and a beneficial resource to humans. We achieve this through environmental awareness and education, research and provision of alternative livelihoods.
To restore degraded wetland that will lead to Grey Crowned Crane and wetland biodiversity population increase and benefit communities sustainably.
What We Do
Reforestation and Water
We work towards restoring forests and having a buffer of forestland, wetlands, streams and riverbanks for the improvement of water quality, providing a conducive habitat for wildlife, soil erosion prevention and lessening land damage leading to invasive species.
We educate and involve the local communities in our conservation activities which helps them embrace and conserve biodiversity for the benefit of both wildlife and the community. This includes indigenous knowledge such as ethnobotany that contributes to the better understanding of the community.
We plant and conserve trees for the purpose of air purification, shelter for wildlife, saving water, renewable energy source and pollution prevention that slows down global warming and climate change for the benefit of current and future generations.
