Globally, forest cover is one-third less than what it once was and global deforestation continues at 18 million hectares per year. This indiscriminate felling of trees, needs to be undertaken on a large scale to reverse the ill effects of deforestation and restore the ecological balance. Protect our nature runs tree plantation campaigns across its projects on a annual basis. The campaigns are community-owned and managed and always implemented alongside environmental education and awareness, to promote environmental stewardship, encouraging a sense of responsibility of the planted trees. In 2018-19, we planted around 5000 fruit trees in the fields of farmers. Alongside, environmental education was provided to 500 children, teachers and community members. This special action indicated a lasting tradition of promoting tree plantation in the projects in cooperation with local communities, government forest offices, and government and state run educational institutes.
