Your impact in Europe: help plant native, fire-resistant trees in the wildfire prone regions of Port-de-Bouc and Fos-sur-Mer, France. Working with Replanter Notre Forêt Provençale and the Bouches-du-Rhône Fire & Rescue Department, we’ll restore fire-resistant trees to regions under increasing pressure from climate change. These trees will be planted with local firefighters during the autumn and winter months, and enhance the value of the forest for the local community. Throughout Europe, Ecosia is committed to finding new projects that support local communities in tackling the very real impacts of the climate crisis.
Your impact in Australia: help restore a burnt rainforest in the Byron Bay area. Unlike other parts of Australia, this rainforest is not supposed to burn and struggles to regenerate by itself. Our local partner, ReForest Now, plants over 100 different native species. The trees will attract rainfall, cool temperatures, clean the air, and provide much needed habitat for wildlife.
Your impact in California: help the American Forest Foundation regenerate burnt areas, in collaboration with local landowners. In addition to planting trees, our local partner thins existing forests to prevent future fires from spreading.
Your impact in Brazil: help firefighters directly. They put out fires set by farmers in the Atlantic Forest, usually to make space for cattle. If these fires aren’t controlled, they often end up burning nearby forests. We’ve seen over the past years that firefighting and educating farmers is a highly effective way of protecting the Atlantic Forest.
- After you’ve completed your purchase, we’ll email you a certificate that highlights the number of trees you will plant and protect. This certificate could also make a thoughtful gift.
Your payment will be added to our tree fund (parked at ethical banks GLS and Triodos) that will be used to plant and protect trees in the near future.
