Endemic species in the Philippines like the majestic Philippine Eagle are losing their homes, fast. Help us restore and protect their habitat through forest restoration! We hope that you will join us in this cause to save our life-giving forests and bring back the only home of our unique and endangered wildlife.
DID YOU KNOW?
- There are over 400 species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects found in the Mounts Banahaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape.
- We need 54% forest cover to serve our ecological needs, but we only 22.93% have forest cover left in the Philippines.
- Tree planting should be backed by sound science and community-based programs to ensure sustainability.
Restoring 5 hectares of forest at Mounts Banahaw-San Cristobal will be done by working with communities and the local government to plant and protect native trees and develop sustainable livelihoods. We will prepare the restoration sites and seedlings, maintain and monitor the tree planting areas, provide livelihood and skills training programs for our partner communities and raise awareness about our unique species.
With your help, we hope to reach our goal of at least $5,000 by June 30, 2017 to make Philippine rainforestation efforts a permanent partner of GlobalGiving. You can donate now by visiting this link: https://www.globalgiving .org/projects/give-a-home-for- philippine-wildlife/.
