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.
