Our forest conservation project in Tanzania
A candid look:
This is how many trees we save per year Needless to say, our commitment has not brought an abrupt end to the overexploitation of the primeval forests. With the help of satellite monitoring, however, the state of deforestation is regularly checked and compared with the rate of deforestation in other, non-protected areas. In this way, the project leaders are able to keep track of the size of the successfully protected area. As a result, 1,250,000 trees per year have already been saved from deforestation.
