Reforestation with ADES in partnership with Vozama
Conservation researchers have found that over the course of the past 70 years, Madagascar as lost 44% of its natural forests. Not only that, most forested areas that survive to this day are heavily fragmented. Forests which provide a vital habitat for Madagascar’s many endemic species of wildlife, and are a critical component of the island’s ecosystem, are threatened by slash-and-burn agriculture, illegal logging, and domestic demand for firewood.
To reverse this trend, ADES runs several reforestation projects to increase the island nation’s forest cover. In 2019, a donation by u‑blox led to 2,500 trees being planted, reforesting a large surface area.
