Forest Conservation Vital To Future

Reforestation is one of the few proven carbon capture solutions available today. Thanks to our partners in East Africa, we have one of the largest carbon capture opportunities in the world and it’s ready to begin immediately.

The most effective carbon capture system in the world operates on photosynthesis. Forest conservation and reforestation can help us make the planet sustainable and communities more resilient.

Africa’s tropical belt is one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world. Millions of people across the continent have already been displaced due to drought, famine and conflict. Desertification has already taken its toll in northern regions and it’s creeping southward because of resource-hungry humans and climate change. The humanitarian crisis is adding to the environmental crisis. Without aggressive intervention, it will escalate and the ecosystem will collapse. It will take endangered species and cultures with it.

The effects of deforestation are causing changes in weather patterns with few heavy rains across the region. Waters from the highlands of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya are decreasing and millions of people below are dependent on that water for survival.

With the help of foundations, corporations, governments, NGOs and donors, we can conserve millions of hectares of existing forests and plant more than 100 million new trees.

The reforestation effort will capture 2.5 million tons of CO2 every year. Forest conservation will help even more.

We also have plans for smaller projects in Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda that represent an opportunity to plant millions of additional trees and much more. It’s possibly the largest carbon-capture opportunity available today and one that we can’t afford to ignore. It’s large enough to help us all fight climate change, while promoting a sustainable watershed, ecosystem and economy for more than 100 million people across East Africa.

Please join us. We need volunteers, donations, grants, sponsors, and media coverage to kickstart this important program immediately. We also need more projects around the world. Forest conservation and reforestation can help capture carbon, defend ecosystems and the planet.

We also offer voluntary carbon offsets to help organizations meet their carbon management objectives. We are working with the regulated carbon markets now to line up certifications. Learn more at http://sacredseedlings.com/east-africa-projects/
