To support and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we have planted an amazing 1500 trees with our non-profit partner One Tree Planted! All thanks to YOUR continued support, we have been able to support reforestation projects all over the world - so THANK YOU!
We have actively been supporting the following planting projects: Protect the Orca and in India & Australia. You can read more about each of these below!
The endangered southern Orca's have called the stretch of Pacific Ocean from Northern California to British Columbia home for over a 1,000 years. Every year, as the Orca's migrate from North to South, they rely on the West Coast Chinook Salmon for food. However, the amount of salmon available to the Orca has been rapidly decreasing due to a loss of habitat and increased pollution. Ultimately, this is impacting the Orca's survival. So I'm sure you're thinking - how can planting trees help this problem? Well, planting trees along rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest restores the natural habitat for the endangered Orca. The trees help reduce pollution and improve the health and quantity of the salmon for the Orca to eat.
Home to over 4.5 million people, the Indian Sunderbans is identified by its beauty and biodiversity. Today this ecosystem is under serious threat from the growing expansion of non-forest land into the mangrove forest areas for farming. This issue has been amplified by climate change, which brews serious storms in the region - resulting in huge losses of forest cover.
This year's fire season has resulted in serious destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation in the state of New South Wales is quite unbelievable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged and 24 people have lost their lives. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife - koalas, kangaroos and wombats to name a few - and their habitat is rapidly declining.
