Peatland Project
Indonesia

The project aims to protect and restore the peatland in the Musi banyuasin district of South Sumatra, Indonesia.  Without this project the area would have been planted with fast-growing acacia for pulp and paper, removing the carbon sequestration and storage capability of the peatland.

In addition to the carbon sequestration benefits the project also protects the habitat for several vulnerable species including the sun bear, the Rhinoceros Hornbill and the Sumatran tiger.

Community development programs in the region includes access to education, public healthcare, employment, a waste plastic recycling program and access to clean drinking water.

Reforestation
Brazil

Rampant deforestation from cattle ranching, agriculture, and logging threaten the ecosystems and the people who rely on them. Encompassing the Amazon rainforest, thousands of miles of mangrove coastline, and the Cerrado savanna, Brazil is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. These habitats are home to 15-20% of the worlds diversity including the blond capuchin monkey, the maned three-toed sloth, and the golden parakeet. 

Eden began scouting planting locations and recruiting leaders in 2021. Eden is working closely with indigenous groups and local teams to restore forests and create financial opportunities for nearby communities, beginning in the Amazon, Cerrado, and coastal mangrove habitats.
