Capturing Carbon Dioxide With Forests

Forests are Mother Nature’s way of capturing carbon and turning it into a productive use. They also hold the majority of biodiversity that we depend on for a healthy ecosystem and they often are the anchors and macro filters of our watersheds.

We must do what we can to stop deforestation and we need to proceed with reforestation and afforestation as much as possible. It’s one of the few things that people can do individually and collectively to pull harmful Co2 from the atmosphere today. Idealists talk about a technological solution, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

These forests below (as seen from satellite) in Tanzania are some of the largest tracts left in Africa. The world can’t afford to lose any more of these, or any, forests. We have a way to save them and reforest them right now.

Deforestation Fuels Global Warming

Deforestation impacts us all and it’s responsible for almost half of the global warming problem, when you consider the carbon released and the carbon capture capacity lost. A healthy forest consumes carbon dioxide from the air, so burning them is a double-edged sword in the fight against climate change. We have destroyed the earth’s capacity to absorb carbon on land. Oceans are already more acidic from absorbing more carbon, which means they are reaching capacity. As a result, carbon dioxide is building up in the atmosphere to record levels.

reforest Tanzania

Forests are important. They are here for a reason. Our Tanzania Projects will make a difference on many levels. We are ready to conserve and reforest thousands of acres in Tanzania today. We also have smaller projects ready to go in Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. This is one of the largest carbon capture projects in the world today.

wildlife conservation and deforestation

We are hot on the trail of foundations, corporations and donors who are willing to invest in this rare opportunity to save vanishing rain forests and endangered species on a grand scale. We don’t have time to waste, so please help us network to find them. Please write to me with any leads or resources that you can offer us in this important cause. Thank you.
