At WWF, we understand that investing in training and education for
local people is critical for long-term biodiversity conservation. That’s
why for over two decades, WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for
Nature Program (EFN) has been providing critical financial support
to proven and potential conservation leaders in Africa, Asia, and
Latin America to gain the skills and knowledge they need to address
conservation challenges in their home countries.
By 2025, WWF aims to protect and improve the management
practices of at least 25 percent of the world’s forests to benefit
biodiversity and forest dependent communities by working with
partners and stakeholders at local, national, and international levels.
EFN is contributing to this goal by providing Reforestation Grants to
local organizations in select WWF priority areas to plant, protect, and
preserve trees. Together, these locally-led projects are helping to
restore and reforest tropical areas of significant conservation value.
When carefully planned, forest restoration activities can provide environmental services to the local community and develop new habitats in formerly bare areas. Restoration and reforestation activities also provide an excellent way to involve local stakeholders, generate income, and allow communities to connect with nature and become a vested part of a larger conservation program.
Connecting corridors, creating buffer zones, improving degraded lands, restoring watersheds, and expanding forest cover are just a few ways that forest restoration can have a real and lasting impact for conservation.
