Project Details

PATT Foundation aims to implement forest restoration projects that provide multiple benefits, primarily to establish quality habitat for wildlife, increase biodiversity and sequester carbon dioxide.
The long term aim is for the community to be employed in restoring managing and harvesting the area.

We would like to train and involve the local people (as well as benefiting from their own local knowledge on suitable species and history of the site) and work together on forest surveying, local seeds gathering and processing, tree maintenance, planting and aftercare. Particularly important is the need to ensure fire prevention, in order for planted trees to survive.

We would like to see local people involved with us on clearing firebreaks, and selecting fire prevention team as fire watch/fire petrol. The aftercare and maintenance for couple years after that is very crucial to certain the sustainability of forest restoration.
