Tree nursery project in the Gobi of Mongolia

For over 40 years, she has been leading this conservation project by growing small seeds & branches, and nurturing them in harsh conditions, before replanting them in areas in desperate need for defence against desertification.

Today, the project forms a small but vital role in the global fight to protect the natural environment which we all share.

It gets very cold in Mongolia over the winter and everything freezes from October to April. When it is warmer and pleasant weather between May and September, Byamba’s team work hard to grow the trees another inch longer. Water is not always available and it doesn’t help when it rains just a few times in July and August during hot extremely dry conditions.

We believe that action to combat desertification in Gobi Desert is required urgently before the costs of rehabilitation rise beyond practical possibility, or before the opportunity to act is lost forever.

By helping to plant, adopt & look after the trees, you will:

  • Offset CO2 emissions & reduce greenhouse gases
  • Provide wildlife habitats & reduce dust and wind
  • Protect native Gobi trees & reduce desertification
