Who your book donations support

Every day, working in some of the world’s most remote and politically unstable places, we overcome challenges with grit, relentlessness, creativity, and an unwavering commitment to our mission to plant trees and save lives. Below are some of the places Eden Reforestation Projects is working!

Madagascar

Most people run from wildfires. Eden Projects, committed to the long-term health of the forest they have planted, run towards them, even when they are wearing shorts and flip-flops, rather than what we think of as regular fire-fighting gear.

Kenya

Would you rather navigate through hyena territory or walk through python-infested bushes? This is not a question most people have to ask themselves during a typical workday. However, our teams face this type of choice every week.

When crabs ate our propagules, killing the seeds before they could grow, our Mozambique team collaborated with Brazil to figure out a creative solution.

Brazil

More than 250 years ago, the Kalunga community escaped from slavery and settled in the Cerrado. Over the years, their land has become degraded and in need of restoration. We are working together to restore 5,000 ha of their local forest.
