Cameroon is blessed with a very rich cultural and ecological diversity. Camaroon's forest covers approximately 21 million hectares, which is almost half of its overall territory. Unfortunately Cameroon's forest is subject to serious problems such as deforestation caused by logging and farming, a lack of an effective forest management program and awareness, climate change and an increase in population.

As a result, the ecosystem has been degraded dramatically and this can reach irreversible proportions. Half of the forest cover has already been lost in 50 years. If people do not work hand in hand for the conservation and preservation of the flora and fauna in Cameroon it can lead to severe land degradation problems.

Green Cameroon started the 'Adopt a Tree Program' to fight deforestation and helping the local community to improve their lives. The aim is to help the community to plant a tree and manage the forest, so that Cameroon can maintain and restore it's beautiful greenery. To read more on this topic, click the following link.
