By 2025, WWF aims to protect and improve the management practices of at least 25% of the world’s forests to benefit biodiversity and forest dependent communities by working with partners and stakeholders at local, national, and international levels. In 2012, with support from The UPS Foundation, the Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) launched the Reforestation Grant Program to fulfill this goal by supporting locally-based organizations working in WWF priority areas to plant, protect, and preserve trees. Together, these locally-led projects are helping to restore and reforest tropical areas of significant conservation value.
