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!
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.
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.
Over half our workforce are women, and for many it is their first opportunity for consistent employment. From managing nurseries to planting seedlings, these women are overcoming gender inequality in their nation.
Working in some of Indonesia's most remote and least developed areas with limited cell and internet service, our teams overcome their communication barriers by climbing up trees and sailing to other islands to provide planting updates.

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.
