Trillion Trees

Trillion Trees is an unprecedented collaboration between three of the world’s largest conservation organisations – WWF, BirdLife International, and the Wildlife Conservation Society – to help end deforestation and restore tree cover. Our partnership is founded on our commitment to a shared vision, and the belief that working together we can achieve more than we can individually.

Tree cover is an essential part of what makes Earth a healthy and prosperous home for people and wildlife, but the global stock has fallen – and continues to fall – dramatically. In fact, we are still losing 10 billion trees per year.

The consequences? More carbon emitted and less absorbed, dwindling freshwater stores, altered rainfall patterns, fewer nutrients to enrich soils, weakened resilience to extreme events and climate change, shrinking habitat for wildlife and other biodiversity, insufficient wood supply to meet rising demand, harsher local climates, and harder lives for more than one billion forest-dependent peoples across the world.

It doesn’t have to be this way. The two key steps that will reverse these trends – keeping existing trees standing, and restoring trees to the places they once grew – are within our capabilities.

Black Rhino Breeding and Conservation Programme

Imire Conservation Park is a 10,000 hectare sub tropical, Miombo tract of land 120kms south east of Harare.

It opened in 1972 as a pilot project to allow the reintroduction of wildlife into commercial farming areas.It was an experiment to prove that by taking a holistic approach to intensive agriculture not only could there be economic benefits to the farmer but also that animals indigenous to the area, previously killed and chased out, could become an integral part of commercial farming.

It was so successful that within 10 years the entire 10,000 hectares was fenced and the animals were able to move freely alongside the cultivation and agriculture. Biodiversity benefits were seen immediately including that of trees and grassland. In 2004 Imire merged with National Parks becoming a Conservancy, the owners became trustees, guardians and custodians of the land, animals and conservation.

The Park has become focused on;Reforestation;Endangered species breeding;riverine rehabilitation;sustainable power and fuel production;education and health care.Restore Our Planet has agreed to provide funding aimed specifically at the protection of the Black Rhino
