9/2/22 — Scientists recently warned that preserving endangered tree species will be crucial to stemming the harms of global warming. One of the places in the world with a lush forested landscape at risk is Haiti. These photos show the colorful beauty of the Haitian countryside.
However, according to the UN, Haiti’s landscape is the most severely degraded in the Western Hemisphere — once plush mountainsides are now barren and devoid of trees as desertification kicks in. The country often experiences extreme damage from climate change-related weather! In 2004, Hurricane Jeanne washed away more than 15,000 hectares of valuable topsoil!!
We were proud to support the Lambi Fund worked with its partners to plant nearly 3,000,000 tree seedlings in Haiti. Learn more about their project and support here: https://culturesofresistance.org/groups-we-support/lambi-fund/
