- About Us
Here's how it works:
Here at Azeus Convene UK, we're passionate about protecting the environment and are alarmed at the rate of deforestation occuring throughout the world. We have partnered with the World Land Trust to ensure each referral you make contributes to the global effort of restoring lost forests, repairing damaged ecosystems and mitigating the impacts of climate change. Read on to find out more about their work.
The World Land Trust (WLT) works with in-country partners to protect crucial areas of land, selecting sites that are rich in biodiversity and that support long-term conservation goals to connect and enlarge protected areas.
Working closely with local partners, the WLT Plant a Tree project commits to long-term maintenance and monitoring long after the saplings have been planted, ensuring that the reforested landscape is given its best chance to flourish.
The reforestation programme has fundamental principles that ensure native species are planted, supporting conservation and the creation of a wildlife-rich habitat.
The process begins, in many reserves, with the collection of seeds to raise in the reserve’s nursery. A mix of native pioneer species are selected, and the saplings are tended to in a nursery until they are ready to be taken on site.
Local partners are taught how to best nurture and protect these newly planted trees, making sure that the habitats successfully regreen, including replacing any seedlings that don’t survive.
Each Plant a Tree project is unique and engages with the local community: in Borneo, local women receive education and employment, while the restoration of Atlantic Forest in Brazil provides educational opportunities for local schools.
