Scorched Earth to Forest Haven

WLT and its local partner, Viet Nature, aim to rejuvenate a landscape left degraded and deforested during the Vietnam War.

The use of Agent Orange over 50 years ago left more than 100,000 hectares of bare land across Vietnam. Invasive grasses took hold, covering the hillside and making it impossible for trees to regrow. We are fundraising £575,000 for the project, which will allow Viet Nature to begin the process of restoring healthy tropical forest - a vital refuge for rare species left displaced and exposed.

This is no easy task. Your donation will help fund an ambitious, labour-intensive project to rejuvenate the depleted soils, clear the invasive grasses, and plant native tree seedlings. These trees will then be protected over the next decade to ensure the new forest is successfully established.
