China

The Facts

The forests of China’s Yunnan and Sichuan provinces are home to endangered species including the iconic panda. Increased development and a growing demand for wood products is turning what used to be some of the most species-rich forests in the world to small, unsustainable groups of trees.

Reforestation in these provinces can help save endangered species, provide clean water and productive farmland for millions of people, and regulate the climate for our planet.

Help Conserve China’s Forests

Increased development and a growing demand for wood products is turning what used to be some of the most species-rich forests in the world to small, unsustainable fragments of trees. Help us Plant a Billion and ensure these forests remain for people and nature.

Help Conserve Iconic Species

The iconic panda and the Yunnan golden monkey will disappear with the richness of the forest if we cannot care and improve the health of forests in China. By connecting their habitat through the Plant a Billion project, we can ensure they not only survive, but thrive.

Help Stabilize the World’s Climate

Help Stabilize the World’s Climate

Forests are the lungs of the Earth, storing enormous amounts of carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen in a never-ending cycle. All of us will lose a global climate regulator if the forests of the Yunnan and Sichuan are gone.

The Plant a Billion projects in China will bring employment opportunities to over one thousand local people in China, will train communities in forest management and will bring benefits to communities in and around the Yunnan and Sichuan regions.
