Help us Build a Bio Bridge

Were Building Bio Bridges 1 purchase = 1 sqm of rainforest restored

As part of our commitment to protect and enrich the world we live in, we’re building Bio-Bridges. Bio-Bridges are restored wildlife corridors within damaged landscapes that help endangered species reconnect, enabling them and local communities to thrive. Each contribution can enable us to help restore 1 square metre of threatened rainforest in Khe Nuoc Trong, Vietnam.

Why we're building...

We start our Bio-Bridges project with World Land Trust in North Central Vietnam. With your support, we're aiming to restore 14.5 million sqm of rainforest in Khe Nuoc Trong, Vietnam, building Bio-Bridges that can connect rare species by linking habitats of biodiversity and enabling local communities to live sustainably. The Body Shop has invested £130,000 to set-up the scheme which includes funding the leasing of the forest for a 30 year period. The funds you help raise will support projects, to protect, restore and regenerate the existing habitat. Together with the World Land Trust, we’re aiming to restore 75 million sqm of forest Bio-Bridges by 2020.

...Bio Bridges

World Land Trust is working with local partner, Viet Nature, to help preserve and maintain the habitat in the Khe Nuoc Trong Forest. This wildlife hotspot is known as a “Forest of Hope”, and is home to critically endangered flora and fauna. Sadly, the forest is being destroyed as a result of illegal logging and poaching. Building Bio-Bridges here and in other critically important locations around the world will help biodiversity to flourish. We want you to feel good knowing you’re helping endangered animals like Reggie, The Red Shanked Douc, get one step closer to finding ‘the one’.

Who is Reggie?

Reggie is a Red Shanked Douc found in the Khe Nuoc Trong forest, which is where our Bio-Bridge is located in Vietnam. The Red Shanked Douc is on the International Union for Conservation of Nature red list of endangered species, The big issue facing the Douc is that he is on the local menu, so is poached for food, fur and for use in Chinese medicine. We know Reggie and the other Red Shanked Douc live in the canopy of the forest and eat various species of plants. Doucs are, like all monkeys, social animals, so he needs our help finding him love!



DO YOUR BIT

1 Purchase = 1 square metre of rainforest restored

Sadly, dating apps for monkeys don’t exist, so Reggie’s going to need your help to get him ready for romance. Show your support by posting a picture of the product you have bought to help towards building a Bio-Bridge. If you really want to go that extra mile, plant some love on your balcony, your kitchen window and anywhere else that could do with a little sprucing up.
