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.
