Kenya is an incredibly beautiful place from the creativity of the people to its diversity of its landscapes and wildlife. From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable.
Eden Reforestation Projects started working with the local community to replant and protect Kenya’s forest systems in 2019. Eden Reforestation Projects is working in 2 distinct regions within Kenya: the Great Rift Valley and the Northern Coast. In partnership with a local organization, Eden Reforestation Projects is planting afromontane species within the Kijabe Forest. The reforestation efforts in the Northern Coast focuses on planting mangrove and coastal forest species. The international team in Kenya has planted over 1 million trees and is continuing to expand planting efforts.
