Reforestation Grants


WWF has the objective to take to scale landscape approaches, including restoration, in at least 10 landscapes where forest ecosystem services are valued and conserved by 2020. In 2012, with support from The UPS Foundation, 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.
