Every minute we loose forest areas almost as large as soccer fields!
Trees are being cut down and burnt at such a rate, that nearly a third of our CO2 emission are caused by deforestation due to palmoil plantations continueing to expand into rainforests. The forests are disappearing in front of our eyes!
Covering over 6,5 million acres, the Leuser Ecosystem is home to countless biological treasures but it is suffering from racing extinction!
Biomass of wild animals has fallen by 82%, natural ecosystems have lost about half of their area and a million species are at risk of extincton....all largely results of human actions!
We, as a responsible tour operator living and working surrounded by sumatras shrinking rainforests, want to change this and we want to help you to reduce your own carbon footprint and set a symbol for a better future!
FIGHT THE CLIMATE CRISIS WITH US!!!
What is the importance of planting trees?
Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe.
What is the benefits of tree planting?
Trees give off oxygen that we need to breathe. Trees reduce the amount of storm water runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways and may reduce the effects of flooding. Many species of wildlife depend on trees for habitat. Trees provide food, protection, and homes for many birds and mammals.
There is so many many reasons to plant trees nowerdays....so lets do it:)
Please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to take part in our tree planting initiative and plant your own tree (we only take a small donation to cover costs).
Trees live many many years and are therefore a wonderful symbol for a longtime bond.
We have 2 areas for our tree planting programme. One is close to Landak River area and here it aims to protect the long term survival of wildlife in the bufferzone of rainforest and local farmlands . Local farmers and wildlife/orangutans often come into conflict with each other as it happens that animals eating and destroying the farmers harvest. Often these conflicts end with killing and shooting of the animals! By planting fruits trees, there will be hopefully enough fruits for both parties so that this problem can be solved!
