The island of Madagascar has lost major of its forest in the past years.
Deforestation has had a direct impact on the environment, topped by insufficient rainfall, which is causing unparalleled famine.
The situation is serious, our teams at Aquarelle, Laguna, Tropic and Floreal decided to join forces with the local community and two organisations namely BONDY and DREDD (Direction Régional de l’environnement et du Développement Durable), under a reforestation project at Antsahasoa, Ankorona Andramasina and Sambaina.
The Good News?
136, 286 plants reforested!
And that, within a time-lapse of two years only!
|Year||Number of Plants reforested|
And yes! Our teams are determined to continue their quest in regenerating the flora and fauna of this beautiful island.
With the belief that every small step can make a difference, Aquarelle and Floreal, have even created a plant nursery on site.
It is very important to ensure the growth of those plants. And hence, the real job of reforestation starts from here actually! Through a proper follow-up program.
Here’s how further to the evaluation of the reforestation project in 2021, the Ministry of Environmental and Sustainable Development has certified the percentage survival rate for our previous projects:
|Year||Area||Number of plants reforested||Number if plants survived||Survival Rate|
|2021||Domaine Forestier National d'Ankofafabe||20000||18000||90%|
|2021||Anjeva, Ambohitrabiby, Andramasina||1982||1940||98%|
|2021||Ankazomalaza Ambohimanga Rova||2000||1080||54%|
Amazing, right? The evaluation continues!
So, follow us on our quest. Plant a tree, make a difference!
