Why are the trees planted in Madagascar?
Planting trees is currently happening on Madagascar. Why there? It’s simple: at this moment, we can make the biggest impact on CO2 reduction and greening of the landscape here. The island has a unique flora and fauna, but these are threatened by large-scale forest clearing. Animals such as lemurs, birds and insects are in danger of gradually losing their habitat. In Madagascar we have the opportunity to make the landscape greener again for flora and fauna that almost threaten to be lost. We make this happen by planting hundreds of thousands of new trees in the coming years.
