CHAKE CONSERVANCY
The Chake Conservancy is actively engaging in community reforestation and afforestation using select species raised in our nursery.
As in other areas of the world, our area has become deforested over time and this has negatively impacted native biodiversity, reduced available shade, released carbon dioxide and reduced the environment’s quality as a watershed.
