AMAZON RAINFOREST:

The southeastern Peruvian Amazon is one of the most biologically diverse habitats on Earth—and under severe deforestation due to highway expansion, gold mining and agriculture.

WILDFF initiatives: Land conservation, environmental education, youth leadership, market-based conservation, organizational capacity building.

UGANDAN WOODLANDS:

In the wake of civil war and poverty, Uganda has lost 2/3 of its forests in the past 20 years. 

WILDFF initiatives: Landscape scale reforestation, empowerment of traditional women healers, agroforestry and climate resiliency training with farmers

Global displacement is at an all-time high, and the basic need for food, shelter and energy by refugees leads to long-term degradation of nearby forests.

WILDFF initiatives:Environmental interventions in a refugee settlement, including reforestation, construction of high-efficiency cookstoves and climate resiliency education.

CONGO RAINFOREST:

The Congo rainforest biome is the world’s second-largest rainforest, however, the wildlife and intact forests are in sharp decline due to poverty, civil war, agricultural expansion, and logging. 

WILDFF initiatives: Community-based reforestation, creation of wildlife refuge, organizational capacity building
