We committed to plant a tree for every submission to our 2021 Sketch For Survival Competition. With just over 1,000 entries, that's a (very) small forest! Thank you to everybody who entered and supported us, your entry has made a small but tangible difference.
We chose to do it through two projects we've worked with in the past:
The Orangutan Foundation. 225 saplings have been planted in the Lamanadau Wildlife Reserve in Central Kalimantan, replacing forest damaged by forest fires. As well as the benefits for the climate, it also re-establishes vital habitat for many endangered species.
Seedballs Africa: We have donated 100kg of seedballs to be scattered in the Masai Mara area of Kenya by the Mara Elephant project, rejuvenating habitat that has been degraded by human and animal activity. This equates to c.12,500 tree seeds, as well as tens of thousands of other smaller vegetation species.
Small steps add up to large strides.
