The goal: securing the ecological reserve
We support the reforestation of former agricultural land near the Colombian Caribbean coast. In cooperation with the Tairona Indians living there, native tree species are planted and the original forest area is restored.
The place: Colombian Caribbean
The reforestation lies at the foot of the Caribbean Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the highest coastal mountain range in the world. There, large-scale banana plantations have created a monoculture in recent decades and increasingly displaced the original rainforest. The young seedlings and the care of the Tairona Indians are now recreating a diverse habitat for numerous animals and plants along the Don Diego River.
