Reforestation and Nurseries Project
Participation by 1,500+ guests have led to…
- 21,000+ seeds planted in our nurseries to begin their growth
- 10,000+ seedlings transplanted from our nurseries into the Dominican soil
- 7+ total acres of land reforested
With time this will lead to more nutrient-rich soil, a reduction in soil loss, and improved localized air and water quality. We are reforesting with native trees that will reestablish the endemic flora—tropical rain forests—that ought to be found on the island.
We are supporting the Dominican Ministry of the Environment in its efforts to reduce human settlements in protected areas, and we are working with private landowners to increase education about conservation and reforestation.
