Terraformation has partnered with ReClimate, a women-led NGO, to reforest 50 hectares of Ukraine’s Rivne region. This area was once a biodiverse woodland, home to hundreds of species of plants, fungi, and birds. The moss-covered ground — aided by the forest’s humid climate — attracted animals such as deer, moose, goats, and wild boars.
Unsustainable agriculture and amber mining throughout the second half of the 20th century depleted the region’s soils and natural biomes. Now, much of the land has been converted to pine plantations.
ReClimate will reforest 50 hectares with 100,000 trees of diverse native species, including silver birch, English oak, quince, spruce, alder, and aspen.
