Why it matters

We all depend on biodiversity

indispensable

Indispensable to life

Did you know that around 50% of all living species are found in forests? Home to much of our planet’s animal and planet life, these trees are where ecosystems thrive.

regulation

Climate regulation

By storing CO2 and producing oxygen, biodiverse forests play an essential role in keeping the climate stable. They also help maintain nutrient and water cycles, and support sustainable production.

danger

Endangered species

Most of us love the biodiversity of our natural world – but it is in danger. More than 1 million animal and plant species face extinction and 500,000 terrestrial species may lose the habitats they need to survive.

Miyawaki forests

miyawaki

Primary forests feature native tree species with little sign of human activity. They are typically dense and a great source of biodiversity. Japanese botanist, Akira Miyawaki developed a reforesting method that allows primary forests to grow on soil affected by humans – and in just 30 years! Miyawaki forests grow 10 times faster and feature 100 times more biodiversity than conventional forests. Your support can help us reforest using the Miyawaki method.

One day, there was a huge forest fire. A single, small hummingbird scooped up water with its beak and poured it on the flames. Other animals watched and said it wouldn’t be enough. The hummingbird replied, “I know, but I'm doing my part.”

Bees and plantations

abeilles

Bees pollinate most plant species and are essential to life on earth. Did you know that 80% of our food depends on pollinators? It’s true – and that’s just one reason why bees are so important. And yet, they are under serious threat. Each year, 30% of bee colonies disappear and in France, 70% of honey hedges have gone in the last 150 years. However, you can make a difference. By sponsoring a beehive and honey hedge, you can support beekeepers and help create new colonies with rich, biodiverse ecosystems where bees can thrive.

Agroforestry

agroforesterie

Agroforestry is where trees and crops are grown on the same land. It’s an ecological, ancestral approach that improves a place’s social, environmental and economic conditions through autonomous agriculture. What are the benefits? Well, agroforestry regenerates both soil and natural resources, and leads to much greater biodiversity. At the same time, it gives farmers the chance to diversify and improve their income. Your support will help us transform forests and change lives for the better.

Reforestation

reboisement

Our reforestation projects support forest owners whose land has been affected by overexploitation, climate hazards, disease or fires. In France, 75% of forests are private and owners rarely have the resources they need for reforestation. And that’s where we come in. Through reforestation, we regenerate carbon sinks and preserve the economic, ecological and social function of the forest. With your support, we help bring them back to life.

Wetlands and riparian forests

zonehumide

Riparian forests that line the banks of rivers and streams are some of the most productive and biodiverse habitats in the world. Home to many animal species that depend on the water, they also play a crucial role in water purification and protect soil from erosion and flooding. But these vital, sponge-like wetlands and forests are under threat from urbanisation. By supporting our projects, you can help make sure they are here for years to come.

MADE YOUR DONATION?

What happens next?

Your donations go to your chosen projects and help create or preserve places of biodiversity.

All our projects are at the centre of forest ecosystems – they are traceable and supervised by our experts.

Every year, we send you an annual activity report that explains the work made possible by your donation.

These are long-term projects, so we continue to monitor the work and report back to you for a minimum of 20 years.
