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).
Native to India and Sri Lanka, they are found in tropical rainforests, swamps, scrub and semi-deciduous forests. Slender lorises are arboreal, traveling along the treetops with slow and precise movements. They live up to 15 years and are mostly insectivorous and frugivorous.
Slender Lorises are highly endangered due to indiscriminate poaching and superstitious beliefs that their body parts have medicinal or magical powers.
Rescued by Bangalore Police, two male slender lorises were admitted to BRC. Traumatized and confused, they were initially under observation to rule out any internal injuries. Fortunately, they seemed to be healthy enough. Since slender lorises are nocturnal primates, we fed them insects and fruits in the night. After observation of two weeks, they were released inside a safe protected forest at night.
