Let's restore the planet
“Trees naturally store and absorb climate-warming carbon dioxide — they are, in fact, our world’s best and most scalable carbon capture and storage technology.”
“MyTrees puts the ability to help restore our world’s forests right now directly into the hands of individuals…and provides an easy action people can take to help fight climate change.”
Nikola Alexandre, Lead of Forest Restoration
Helping fund restoration
MyTrees supports key on-the-ground Conservation International projects around the globe. These programs include:
Peru, Alto Mayo rainforest — Growing
The Alto Mayo Protected Forest had some of Peru’s highest deforestation rates. With the help of partners, Conservation International is engaging communities in protecting and restoring vital forests.
Brazil, Amazon rainforest — Protecting
We are restoring 73 million trees in the Brazilian Amazon as part of the world’s largest tropical forest restoration project.
Kenya, Chyulu Hills — Protecting
The Chyulu HIlls are an integral part of Kenya’s largest conservation landscape. We are helping safeguard them through a program to compensate communities for keeping the forests standing.
Colombia, Cispata mangroves — Growing
Deforestation here is associated with the expansion of agriculture, tourism and illegal logging. We are currently leading a mangrove conservation project that aims to sequester an estimated 1 million metric tonnes of CO2 over the lifetime of the project.
