Most you opt to Carbon Offset when you come on safari with us, which is fab! We are working with an organisation here in Tanzania called Carbon Tanzania to enable this to happen, right here on our doorstep.
‘We generate forest-based carbon credits that enable Tanzania’s indigenous resource-owners to earn revenues from the protection of their natural resources. These verified emission reductions allow businesses with credible decarbonisation strategies to invest in a nature-based solution that serves the climate, indigenous communities and wildlife, and contributes to delivering the Sustainable Development Goals.’
Over 10 years ago Carbon Tanzania begun this work and have grown so much in that time. We have been working with them for many, many years now and are so pleased to see the impact they are having. They are generating forest-based carbon credits that enable Tanzania’s indigenous resource-owners to earn revenues from the protection of their natural resources. This work with the local communities, allows organisations like us to invest in a nature-based solution that serves the climate, indigenous communities and wildlife.
In 2021, Carbon Tanzania addressed 12 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, protected over 688,000 ha of forest, over 1,5 million trees were kept in the ground, 113,883 people directly benefitted from their 3 projects, and they helped to protect 16 threatened species that were on the IUCN Red List.
For all of this, we are so proud and honoured to support such an amazing organisation and to be part of this journey. We will continue to do what we can to protect this world we are living in. To read up more about Carbon Tanzania and what they do, you can visit their website.
