Reclaiming the land

One hundred indigenous trees have just been delivered to the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, as part of our re-wilding program. This wonderful donation was organised by Food & Trees for Africa and sponsored Faithful To Nature – THANK YOU!

When ADI purchased our 455-acre sanctuary, the land had been largely denuded by agriculture. By the end of the year, we will have planted over 200 trees, and we will keep going. The largest trees we needed for lion and tiger habitats have been sponsored by Trees for Tigers USA – check the pic below of dear Iron enjoying one of newly planted trees last year. We have also allowed the wildflowers to seed and we are seeing explosions of colour around the sanctuary. The number of birds and insects has increased dramatically since our arrival. We will be popping some plants into the habitat we are preparing for Ruben right now. Over the years we will see this investment in nature turn our sanctuary into something truly spectacular.
