The Snowy Mountains are of incredible historical and ecological importance. They’re Australia’s largest alpine region and home for hundreds of endemic plant and animal species. The Snowies, like many of the world’s wild places, are particularly threatened by the effects of climate change.
Off the back of We Are Explorers’ highly successful 2019 crowdfunding campaign, where they purchased and protected a block of Daintree Rainforest, the leading travel publisher has partnered with the not-for-profit organisation Keep it Cool, to plant 6,000 native trees in the Snowy Mountains.
By planting these trees, We Are Explorers aims to create new habitats for wildlife, beautify the natural environment and, most importantly, draw down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, making a positive contribution towards reversing the effects of climate change.
Every $5 donated will guarantee one tree can grow and thrive in Snowy Mountains’ soil.
They’re rallying the troops to support this local, “tree-roots”, crowdfunding project and help Rewild The Snowies.
Crowdfunding officially commenceed Tuesday 17 November and will run for just under a month. Head to the RewildTheSnowies Chuffed.org page to donate and support their cause!
