About this Project

Madagascar has one of the most diverse forest ec
osystems in the world  and used to be a haven for global biodiversity. Unfortunately, the island is currently suffering from critical habitat loss, affecting its unique endemic species. 

The mangrove estuaries along the coastline have been decimated,  causingmudflats to wash into the ocean, ruining prosperous fisheries, and making coastal communities more susceptible to hurricanes, tsunamis, and floods. Additionally, deforestation in its dry deciduous forests poses a grave threat to local biodiversity. Since human arrival, over 90% of Madagascar's forests have been lost, leading to species displacement and considerable water quality degradation.


Furthr, in collaboration with Eden Reforestation Projects, is taking steps to restore the ecological balance on the island. We aim to plant trees across various coastal mangrove and dry deciduous sites in the island's northwest region. Mangrove forests are crucial for these ecosystems as they stabilize the soil and coastline, deter erosion, and provide a natural barrier between the ocean and land.
