Each purchase will lead to the planting of mangrove trees in Madagascar. The reforestation efforts revive natural habitats, improve coral reef health, support local livelihoods, and aid in fights against climate change by extracting C02 from the air.
The mangrove planting project has started in Madagascar!
The project aims to restore natural resources on the Malagasy coast and tackle food insecurity by planting 7,200 mangrove trees of five different species. This project has a strong educational component – it allows students from nearby schools to participate in a planting day and raises awareness of environmental issues throughout the school year.
Between 2002 and 2019, Madagascar lost 1.3 million hectares of forest. Mangroves, the island’s coastal ecosystems, are the first victims of this deforestation.
Aware of this ecological and socio-economic threat to local populations, A Tree for You is working with the association Eau de Coco on the field, and with Kinomé for the educational component to bring Malagasy children back in contact with nature, especially mangroves, and enable them to take real action to restore them.
