Trees for the Future

A bare-root nursery with recently-germinated seeds (notice the tiny green shoots) in Folepi, a village adjacent to a proposed Cross River Gorilla wildlife sanctuary.

This not only helps them, it also reduces pressure on the forest and the habitat for critically endangered species. Planting out of poverty: http://www.treesforthefuture.org/
