WHAT IS A BIO-BRIDGE?

As part of our commitment to protect and enrich the world we live in, we’re building Bio-Bridges. Bio-Bridges are restored wildlife corridors within damaged landscapes that help endangered species reconnect, enabling them and local communities to thrive

Over the coming months, participating The Body Shop stores will make a contribution of 1p for every purchase (one customer transaction) made in our stores or websites. Find out when your country is participating below.

Each contribution can enable us to help restore 1 square meter of threatened rainforest in Khe Nuoc Trong, Vietnam.

WHY WE’RE BUILDING BRIDGES WITH NATURE

We will start our Bio-Bridges project with World Land Trust this year in North Central Vietnam. With your support this summer, we are aiming to restore 14.5 million square meters of rainforest in in Khe Nuoc Trong, Vietnam, building Bio-Bridges that can connect rare species by linking habitats of biodiversity and enabling local communities to live sustainably.

The Body Shop has invested $130,000 to set-up the scheme which includes funding the leasing of the forest for a 30 year period. The funds you help to raise will support actions and projects on the ground, to protect, restore and regenerate the existing habitat. Together with the World Land Trust, we're aiming to restore 75 million square meters of forest Bio-Bridges by 2020.

Our partner World Land Trust is working on the ground with a local partner, Viet Nature, to help preserve and maintain the habitat in the Khe Nuoc Trong Forest.

WHO IS REGGIE

Reggie is a Red Shanked Douc found in the Khe Nuoc Trong forest, which is the setting for our Bio-Bridge in Vietnam. The Red Shanked Douc is on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) red list of endangered species, The big issue facing the Douc is that he is on the local menu, so is poached for food, fur and for use in Chinese medicine.
