Congratulations to our winning conservation partners!

Recently Healthy Planet held a competition between our 15 conservation partners. Their mission was to spread the environmental message that Healthy Planet promotes to their supporters across the world. We are pleased to announce the two winning contestants who, in return for their enthusiasm and dedication in spreading the word, will receive grants towards their important conservation work.

Plant a Tree Today Foundation (PATT) won the winning £5000 grant

PATT is one of our original project partners; they seek to restore forest land to its former glory after years of illegal encroachment.

Healthy Planet supporters have funded a tree nursery, the planting of new seedlings and teacher training for educational visits from local schools in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand. Following on from this success, supporters are now able to adopt plots at a brand new PATT project in Mae Na Park, northern Thailand. They aim to plant 150,000 native trees within the park in 3 years, so they urgently need your help to support the re-forestation of a forgotten paradise.

The Monarch Butterfly Fund were in second place, winning a £2500 grant

The Monarch Butterfly Fund is a US-based organisation that partners with the charity Alternare. The aim of the project is to protect the breeding habitat of the beautiful Monarch Butterfly species found in Mexico. This is done through reforestation techniques and establishing an eco-tourism trade to encourage the protection of the local habitat.

We are delighted to be providing additional support to these exceptional organisations. If you would like us to consider your organisation as a new partner please email headranger@healthyplanet.org

If you would like to support any of our project partners you can adopt a plot on the Healthy Planet website
