GREENING AUSTRALIA: RESTORE THE LAND
Greening Australia is a non-profit organization that is leading one of the world's largest and most ambitious ecological restoration programs. Their mission is to restore degraded landscapes and protect biodiversity across Australia. The organization aims to restore 330,000 hectares of native trees by 2030, with the help of Traditional Owners, scientists, and local land managers. Through their efforts, they plan to plant 500 million trees and shrubs that will not only store carbon and create quality habitats for native wildlife but also help to restore degraded farmland. This massive restoration effort will absorb over 1.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by 2030, thereby reducing atmospheric carbon pollution. By supporting Greening Australia, we can all make a positive impact on our planet's future.
$50 = plants enough trees and shrubs to store 1 tonne of carbon dioxide
