Planting Trees - How Does It Work?

 

Whenever you buy suns or other items in the game with real money, this creates revenue.

Birthplace donates a portion of this revenue to certified organisations that restore ecosystems in the real world.

The % that is being donated is variable and balanced with reinvestments in new content for the game.

Birthplace aims to plant as many trees as possible.

Current Tree Planting Projects

 

Birthplace started with two projects:

One that expands the vulnerable and threatened Indonesian rainforest, home to the Orangutan.

One that restores some of the more than 90% of destroyed Madagascar original forests.

Planting Trees in Sumatra's Leuser Ecosystem, Indonesia

with Orangutan Information Center (OIC) and Sumatran Orangutan Society (S.O.S.)

Oranguan Information Center (OIC)

website

Established in 2001

Rescued over 180 orangutans

Planted over 2.2 million seedlings

Restored 2.000+ Ha of forest

OIC created a reforesting project specifically for Birthplace.
The to-be-planted area is located on the edge of the Leuser Ecosystem; the only place on earth where the orangutan, rhinoceros, Sumatran elephant and Sumatran tiger still live together.
We're starting with 1Ha of land, which plants about 1,100 trees. More land can be added.
The trees that will be planted will be a good mix of rainforest trees and fruit trees, so that there will be plenty of food for the animals that return.

S.O.S. supports high-impact frontline projects and delivers hard-hitting campaigns, which together secure a brighter future for Sumatra’s orangutans, forests and people.

OIC & S.O.S. will share updates about this project in the newsfeed in the game.

Planting Trees in Madagascar

with Eden Projects & Tree-Nation

Eden Projects

website

Established in 2004

Operates in 8 countries

Planted over 347 million trees in Madagascar

Created over 3 million work days in Madagascar

Famous for its unique biodiversity and lush forests, Madagascar has some of the rarest animal and plant species on the planet. Tragically, more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed.

 

Eden Projects launched its Madagascar project sites in 2007 by restoring ecologically devastated mangrove estuaries in the northwest of the country. Mangrove forests are essential ecosystems whose dense roots serve as an anchor for the soil and coastline preventing erosion and creating a barrier between harsh ocean systems and land. Eden Projects partners include two National Park systems, which aim to reforest and revive natural habitat for endangered and endemic animal species.

Tree-Nation

website

Tree-Nation gathers and coordinates reforestation efforts worldwide in a unique platform, enabling every citizen, company and planter to take action. Tree-Nation is a home to 255 planting projects from 33 differents countries. These projects use Tree-Nation to share their stories and get help in their journey to reforest the world.

Eden Projects & Tree-Nation will share updates about this project in the newsfeed in the game.
