    Going strong into Summer 2021

    As summer ramps up in many places around the world, so too are several of our awesome projects — and we're so excited to share what we've been up to. From the Philippines and Australia to Sri Lanka and Costa Rica, tune in for some fresh-from-the-field updates courtesy of our awesome forest ambassadors Kyleigh and Nicole!

    Here's Our May 2021 Reforestation Update!

    Want to Learn More About the Projects We Featured This Month?

    In the Philippines, we began planting 40,000 trees on June 1st to help the B’llaan Tribe restore deforested land in the Mount Matutum Protected Area, an important watershed and haven for endangered wildlife. In addition, this project will restore coastal mangrove ecosystems, which are vital for coral reefs and countless aquatic and terrestrial species.

    This project is especially impactful because tropical forests in the Philippines have been hit particularly hard by logging and resource extraction, with only 6% of the country remaining forested.

    In Australia's Southwest Western region, we began planting 1 million trees on June 1st as part of a multi-year initiative to restore habitat, conserve biodiversity, and buffer important wildlife corridors in a biodiversity hotspot. The project was kicked off by a small Noongar ‘Blessing Gathering with aboriginal Elders and key project members.

    This region of Australia has been recognized as one of the world's top 25 Biodiversity Hotspots — and planting here will improve the connectivity and ecological permeability of these landscapes, benefiting biodiversity for generations to come.

    In Sri Lanka,  we began planting 20,000 mangrove trees on June 1st to restore a lagoon that was damaged and degraded during civil conflict. Working with the local community, this restoration will benefit marine biodiversity that depends on mangrove ecosystems, help buffer against storms and rising sea levels, provide benefits to the local community, and more!

    And finally, this month's deep dive finds us in the field in Costa Rica with Ross, our monitoring and forestry specialist and Malcolm, our Latin America project manager as they visit our awesome project on Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. Located on Costa Rica's Pacific coast and within La Amistad National Park, the Osa Peninsula is the largest remaining forest in Central America.

    We're planting 148,000 trees here in partnership with landowners in vital watersheds and regions identified by NASA Develop and CR government studies. Planting trees here will improve habitat connectivity for Costa Rica's incredible biodiversity, restore degraded land in one of the world's last wild places, benefit the local community and more!

    Thanks for tuning in to our update, we'll see you next month! Miss us already? Check out the One Tree Planted Youtube channel for more awesome videos. And don't forget, we have plenty of other awesome tree planting projects like these. Choose a reforestation project and plant a tree today!
