We spent the morning with Ngare Ndare Forest Trust. It was incredible to hear that in November and December last year, they planted 39,000 seedlings, that's HUGE!! 🌱🌱🌱 Ngare Ndare is a lush, indigenous forest which forms a vital corridor between Mount Kenya and the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. It is an important elephant migration route as well as providing habitat for rhino, lions, and other species. Ngare Ndare is one of the few forests in Kenya with an increasing canopy cover, due to the annual planting of over 50,000 indigenous trees from the NNFT tree nursery.
A grant from Tusk in 2013 was used to put up a 13.5km fence on the forest boundary, with very positive results for human-wildlife conflict. Since then Tusk funds have been used to cover various operating expenses, enabling the NNFT to continue activities such as maintaining fences and holding the annual tree planting event, as well as covering staff salaries and equipment costs.
Thank you for all the work you do Ngare Ndare Forest Trust. @landrover @landrover_uk @landroverafrica
