Forest Conservation Critical In Battle Against Climate Change
Deforestation is responsible for about 20 percent of the rise in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Forest conservation is a critical part of the solution to climate change, water conservation and overall sustainability.
Reforestation and Forest Conservation
- Captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to help minimize global warming and climate change;
- Preserves wildlife habitat and biodiversity;
- Controls flooding by minimizing runoff and topsoil loss; and
- Creates local jobs and sustainable economic opportunities.
Sacred Seedlings is a global initiative to support forest conservation, reforestation, urban forestry, carbon capture, sustainable agriculture and wildlife conservation. It supports the vision of local stakeholders. We have projects ready across Africa. We seek additional projects elsewhere around the world. We also seek volunteers, sponsors and donors of cash and in-kind support. Write to Gary Chandler for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
