Gift card with a tree in Australia
- Australia is experiencing one of the biggest natural disasters in its history. This year's fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across all Australia, burning nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and more than 20 people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife, koalas, wombats, and kangaroos. Their habitat is rapidly declining.
- At the moment, our partners in Australia are focusing their attention on managing and mitigating the fires at hand, protecting people's properties, and assessing the environmental and community impacts. However, in due time, they will need plenty of support to restore this landscape back to health. Once the fires have settled and the land is ready to take on new trees, our partners are forecasting to restore over 6 million trees across Australia in 2020.
- While trees for this project will not go in the ground until the fires have ended and the soil repaired, by supporting this project now you are making sure our partners in Australia are ready to hit the ground running and repair this beautiful and iconic landscape.
- Our partner has chosen trees that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region. This includes various types of native trees and companion plants, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored across New South Wales and Australia.
