You buy Only Earth for the first time and we plant a tree on your behalf.
We are committed to planting 100,000 Mangrove trees in the span of five years. Mangroves plants are highly productive and it is estimated that the average annual carbon sequestration rate of mangrove ecosystems averages between 6 and 8 Mg CO2 e/ha (tons of CO2 equivalent per hectare).
The grey headed swamphen is endemic to the South Asian region but they have become common in America too. Juveniles are duller than adults and lack the red bill and shield. They usually inhabitant, in small groups, marshy areas and fresh water bodies such as swamps, rivers, and lakes. They clumsily feed on reeds and floating vegetation at muddy water edges.
A young swamphen was brought to the centre from Jigni, on the outskirts of Bangalore. He was being kept as a pet captivity. Now he is active and healthy but will not be released soon as he is very comfortable with humans. This would pose a threat to his survival in the wild. BRC is in the process of rehabilitating and rewilding him. Once this happens, he will be released near a protected water body.
