Saving Forests

Protecting wildlife means protecting their homes, which are being threatened by deforestation and global warming. This is why Wildlife Works is engaged in the business of creating and selling carbon offset credits.

UN climate change talks point to high hopes for an initiative in which Wildlife Works has been a leader for the past 2 years. The program is called REDD (Reduced Emissions From Deforestation and Degradation), a set of standards that support the marketplace for Carbon Offsets as a sustainable and scaleable funding mechanism for biodiverse forest protection.

In the Spring of 2011, Wildlife Works, a GOLD level awarded biodiversity project developer, will offer direct-to-consumer carbon offset credits created from the forest and community projects that we manage.

    I am a farmer with tree nursery and like to partner with you, so that you can buy my seedlings.I am from Tharaka Nithi County. thank you

  2. In an attempt to reforest Kenya, what can a local Niarobian do?

    • Hi Maree,
      The best thing you can do is to support projects and spread the word! Our Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project between Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks protects the existing forests there and engages the local community in reforestation as well. You can support the Kasigau Project and offset your carbon footprint at wildlifeworks.com/shopcarbon.
      Thanks!
