About Kenya

Kenya is an incredibly beautiful place from the creativity of the people to its diversity of its landscapes and wildlife. From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable.

This project works with the local community to replant and protect Kenya’s forest systems planting mangrove and coastal forest species.
