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).
Mugger Crocodile is native to freshwater habitats from the Indian subcontinent to southern Iran. Adults prey on fish, reptiles and mammals while the young feed on insects. The species has been listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. They are threatened by human-wildlife conflict, get caught in fishing nets or killed in fear by humans.
A young baby crocodile was rescued by the police and brought to the centre for rehabilitation. She was being kept in the sump of a house for sale into the illegal wildlife trade. The baby was very aggressive with a sharp set of teeth. She had to be carefully handled for examination and was left in an enclosure with a water pool filled with fish and frogs. Hiding and basking spaces were also provided which is essential for all captive reptiles. After an observation period of three weeks, the baby crocodile was released in a water body deep inside the protected forest.
