GTC projects from the past 20 years demonstrate that we can effectively protect & conserve threatened tree species. Now is the time for global action!
The State of the World’s Trees shows that 30% of all tree species – more than 17,500 species – are threatened with extinction.
The Global Trees Campaign works with partners around the world to carry out conservation projects for threatened tree species. Here are some of our latest projects:
- Avoiding tree extinctions in Mauritius
- Conserving three endemic trees on Cape Verde’s “Island of Flowers”
- Conserving 5 threatened Magnolias in México
The Global Trees Campaign website hosts a selection of profiles for threatened trees.
Some of the latest trees we have added to the site are:
- Acaju-catinga – Cedrela fissilis
