The goal of the seven forests project is to use reforestation, agroforestry and rewilding to restore and expand the forest biomes of the world. It is an ambitious undertaking only possible with the support of our heroes - our customers and followers. Your support is everything to the success of the project and the future of the planet.
Even though the situation seems hopeless, it is not impossible to restore nature to what it was, for our future, it is impossible to do anything else.
A CONNECTED WORLD
Each forest biome seems to be a world unto itself, however in truth they are all connected, fertility flows across the globe from one biome to another.
The sands of the Sahara desert blow westward across the ocean to fertilize the rain forest, the birds and fish migrate from one biome to the next tying the ecosystems together.
Through inter-connectivity, nature maintains a perfect balance that allows all life to thrive.
Boreal forest - forests growing close to the poles where freezing temperatures create an icy environment for up to 8 months of the year. Growth is slow, food is scarce and only those who can endure can survive.
Main threats - logging, mining and oil/gas extraction.
Temperate forest - generally made of a mix of pine and broadleaf, these forests have warm summers and cold winters with rain is spread throughout the year.
In generally hospitable climate, recognized for its iconic four season pattern it loved by many animals and is one of the best for agricultural production.
Main threats - Chemical pollution, pests and diseases.
Montane forest - Found on the slopes of mountains, the altitude in these regions strongly affects the ecosystem. The temperatures continue to fall as elevation increases - the higher up, the colder.
Sometimes a respite from tropical heat, sometimes and frozen rocky deathtrap of jagged rocks. How high your willing to go can make all the difference.
Main threats - Population pressures and the expansion of intensive agriculture.
Dry forest - occurring in climates that are warm all year-round but have long dry seasons which last several months.
Main threats - Fire and invasive grasses.
Rainforest - An area of tall, mostly evergreen trees and a high amount of rainfall. Known to be remarkably diverse, however soil quality is regularly poor.
Main threats - Ranching & Agriculture, Poaching and smuggling
Mangrove forest - Mangroves are salt-tolerant trees, they grow in low-oxygen soil with slow-moving water. An important nursery habitat for species live in coral reefs.
Main threats - Tourist developments, shrimp aquaculture
Kelp forest - Underwater areas with a high density of kelp, a type of algae. Recognized as one of the most productive and dynamic ecosystems on Earth.
Main threats - Warming, ocean acidification and trawling.
How it works?
Every product purchased from haqua will plant one tree, liking and commenting on selected social media posts will also plant trees.
These trees will be used for reforestation projects to expand the worlds threatened forest ecosystems and to adapt human infrastructure to work with nature.
In addition to planting trees, the promotion of natural regeneration and re-wilding practices will be encouraged, boosting the speed that the forests grow.
