Planting Trees - How Does It Work?
Whenever you buy suns, coins or other items in the game with real money, this creates revenue.
Jungle Heroes 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.
Jungle Heroes aims to plant as many trees as possible.
Current Tree Planting Projects
Jungle heroes started with two projects:
One that expands the vulnerable and threatened Indonesian rainforest, home to the Orangutan.
And one that restores some of the more than 90% of destroyed original forests of Madagascar.
Planting Trees in Sumatra's Leuser Ecosystem, Indonesia
with Orangutan Information Center (OIC) and Sumatran Orangutan Society (S.O.S.)
Oranguan Information Center (OIC)
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 Jungle Heroes.
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 started with 1Ha of land, which plants about 1,100 trees. More land will be added soon.
The trees that are planted are a good mix of rainforest trees and fruit trees, meaning there will be plenty of food for the animals that return.
Sumatran Orangutan Society (S.O.S.)
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.

Planting Trees in Madagascar
with Eden Projects & Tree-Nation
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 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.
