RE-WILDING THE GARO GREEN SPINE

 

Together with Wildlife Trust of India, The Body Shop is helping to Re-wild habitat in Garo Hills, Meghalaya. We do this by protecting endangered elephants from the destruction of their habitat and by providing healthcare to indigenous community, the guardian of Garo Greeen Spine.

WHY WE’RE BUILDING BRIDGES WITH NATURE

We’ve been building bio-bridges all over the world to help protect animals and their natural habitats. ‘Bio-bridges’ are restored wildlife corridors in damaged landscapes that help endangered species to reconnect, breed and thrive again.

Our World Bio-Bridges Mission aims to enrich biodiversity around the world by protecting and regenerating 75 million square metres of habitat and building 10 bio-bridges by 2020.
