Why we seek your help
Due to a high level of deforestation, disturbances to the forests throughout the world there is a rapid reduction in the forest cover leading to loss of habitat for wild animals, insects, birds and critically endangering them and causing global warming, leaving the soil barren and exposed to vagaries of nature, leading to soil erosion, desertification, colonization of invasive weeds and impairing the ecosystem services they offer. Eco Society India is actively working on afforestation of large tracts of unused vacant natural spaces in and around Chennai.
How you can help us
Last year we have covered 2000 sq m of land area for afforestation with 515 saplings with a 95% survival rate. This year we are planning to plant 10,000 saplings at Rs 350/- per each sapling by the Miyawaki method. Since the Miyawaki method is found to be the best method to raise saplings at a 10xfaster rate than the regular methods we need funds to buy farm manure, paddy husk, sugarcane bagasse, cocopeat, hiring JCB machine for digging pits. Donors will be informed of the expenses incurred throughout the course of the implementation of the project.
