Save a native forest

Less than 2% native forest remains in Mauritius. Without action, invasive alien plants will replace what remains and the unique animals and plants that once found the island a paradise will go extinct. Support our efforts to weed and replace non-native species with native plants.

 

For every Rs 500 = 1 native tree planted and weeded for a year.

Remove excess carbon from our atmosphere

Restored forests are the best solution to removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reversing global warming.

• Forests balance the Earth’s water-cycle essential for cooling our climate.
• Forests stabilize the climate by sucking carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere and fixing it into soils and biomass.
• 50% of a tree’s biomass is carbon which remains stored, acting as a ‘carbon sink’, unless the tree decays or is burned. This is why long-lived hardwoods such as ebony are excellent at reducing our carbon footprint.
• Plantation forests are poorer at storing carbon than natural restored forests as they are harvested and cleared releasing carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere every 10-20 years, whereas ebony forests continue to sequester carbon for centuries.

Plant natives

If you live in Mauritius, you can do your bit by choosing to plant native rather than exotic plants in your garden. There are so many reasons why native and endemic species are the ideal garden plant.

 

We have a wide range of native and endemic plants suitable for coastal and inland homes.
