A highlight of the reforestation projects funded for our employees
Since the 1970s, Mozambique has lost 8 million hectares of forests - that’s the same size as Portugal! In a country that's home to 20 threatened bird species, and over 200 native mammal species, losing 1000 football fields' worth of forests every day is a big problem. On top of this, over 45% of the population live beneath the poverty line and rely heavily on local biodiversity for survival.
In partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, our subscribers are planting protected trees across multiple inland and coastal mangrove sites in the south of the country, creating opportunity for employment and restoring habitats for key endangered wildlife.
