A group of volunteers planting trees to aid reforestation

Combat Climate Change

The lungs of our planet are being burnt and destroyed. It’s now possible for you to take a more active role in the negative effects this has on our planet. Join us on efforts to combat climate change and assist with global reforestation. You can help with various reforestation activities like planting trees and offsetting carbon footprints in places like Fiji and the Amazon. 

As a volunteer, you can assist with the following:

  • Grow and monitor the health of tree and mangrove saplings in a nursery
  • Reforestation of trees and mangroves in forests, coastlines and more
  • Study mahogany and indigenous trees and their positive impact on the environment

Last year, these efforts yielded great results. Our volunteers planted over 57,700 trees, including over 37,600 mangroves, that will help reduce carbon emissions.
