Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth in all forms and interactions, thrives in healthy habitats. This Giving Tuesday, you can give back by restoring habitat for iconic wildlife. Learn more
Planting trees on Giving Tuesday will contribute to:
Recognized as one of the 17 "megadiverse" countries, around 8% of the world’s flora and fauna is found in India. The coastal Sunderbands Forest is an especially important environment for both land and sea creatures. Planting Mangrove trees helps to restore this unique ecosystem from the bottom of the food chain to the top, creating habitat for marine biodiversity, small predators, and the critically endangered Apex predator — The Bengal Tiger.
Since 1990, around 45% of Honduras’ natural forests have disappeared. Miraculously, Honduras is still dotted with hotspots of biodiversity, providing homes for macaws, jaguars, and giant iguanas — and of course, Baird’s Tapir! This endangered hooved mammal is the largest Native land mammal in Honduras, and needs restored habitat in the mountainous Nombre de Dios region that it calls home. With your help, we have an opportunity to restore degraded land to make a home for Honduras’ iconic wildlife.
We’re reforesting the Chippewa National Forest in North-Central Minnesota, which spans more than 600,000 acres, home to some of the state’s last old-growth forests. Notably, the Chippewa National Forest has one of the highest densities of bald eagle nesting sites in the country, with more than 150 pairs nesting in the forest annually. Reforestation can keep the Chippewa National Forest healthy for generations to come, and preserve the culture of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwa, who have a deep connection with the forest.
Reforestation creates a safe haven for biodiversity, allowing for a wide array of habitats and an increase in animals populations.
Increasing forest cover contributes to the restoration of holistic ecosystems, which in turn promotes a range of flora and fauna to grow.
Planting trees helps to rebuild the soil with nutrients, soaks up excess water, and reduces erosion thanks to strong root structures.
