Reforestation of burnt and cleared areas is an essential part of our work. Replanting trees prevent soil erosion, restores wildlife habitats and reduces fire risks; it engages local communities in conservation, and it contributes to the global fight to stop climate change.
We support and empower community-led initiatives to protect forest and biodiversity, including anti-logging patrols, fire-fighting teams, environmental education, and the replanting and restoration of damaged forests. All donations support these on-the-ground conservation efforts.
Like everyone else, BNF is having to deal with the extraordinary global situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, their families and the communities we work with, and the wildlife we study. We are therefore taking a variety of steps to help safeguard these.
