Advocating for a Wild Tomorrow today

In today's world, our focus on wildlife conservation is more crucial than ever.

Over the span of our lives, a staggering one million species teeter on the brink of extinction, mainly because of habitat destruction.

Confronted with this sobering truth, and as proud participants in the 1% for the Planet initiative, we have chosen to dedicate a portion of our voluntary pledge to support a nonprofit organization dedicated to halting this alarming trend.

It was in 2020 that we met Wild Tomorrow.

This Non-Profit is dedicated to preserving and protecting wildlife habitats so that species can recover and conserve. Proving essential resources to foster the growth and development of natural reserves.

Currently, they are actively engaged in establishing a wildlife corridor aimed at linking two expansive reserves. This initiative seeks to expand and reestablish vital habitat for elephants and other vulnerable species threatened by poaching.

The project is comprised of three phases:

Protect. Restore. Re-wild.

To date, over 1.295 hectares of land have been secured, situated along the south bank of the Msinene River, a perennial tributary that flows into iSimingaliso Wetland Park (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and it is located in one of the world's 36 recognized biodiversity hotspots.

These lands, along with three neighboring areas with conservation purposes, have been officially recognized as protected areas under the South African Protected Areas Act. This means that the Great Ukuwela Nature Reserve can never be exploited, cultivated, or urbanized.

This land is already home to leopards, hyenas, zebra, wildebeest, hippos and countless other species. A precious river surrounded by fever tree forest, open grasslands, riverine thickets, and mixed woodlands, make it one of the most beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the region.

While the corridor is now secured and legally protected as a Nature Reserve, there is much to do to rehabilitate its ecosystems and ready it for expansion.

This includes removing invasive exotic plants by initiating the growth of native herbs, shrubs, and trees. As well as upgrading ranger camp infrastructure, installing solar power, and restoring the sand forest.

We are proud to be part of Wild Tomorrow's initiative and to see how their efforts offer a visible impact in their area of operation, which is why our commitment to them remains annual.

You, as a member of this family, are also responsible for this.

These actions have been partially made possible thanks to 1% of every euro billed by this company.

Trendsplant is not just about making good products. We make decisions that are good for both the planet and the people living on it, prioritizing those interests over our own.
