The Mai Ndombe REDD+ Forest Conservation
Project developed by Wildlife Works Carbon LLC
Forest conservation and restoration (REDD+)
Protecting endangered forests from illegal tree cutting or planting trees in areas that have already been deforested.
About the project
The Mai Ndombe REDD+ Project protects 300,000 hectares (740,000 acres) of critical bonobo and forest elephant habitat within the world’s second-largest intact rainforest and some of the most important wetlands on the planet, the Congo Basin. This project reduces the principal drivers of forest and biodiversity loss and is charting a new pathway for community prosperity through comprehensive investments into the surrounding local communities, which are among the most impoverished in the world.
