The Baobab Foundation
We promote and support the conservation of baobab trees and the lives of the communities who live among these magnificent trees.
The baobab population is stable across Africa, however in some places they face a number of threats. These include clearing land for agriculture, industrial and peri-urban development, disease, pollinator survival, elephant damage and the survival of seedlings in the wild.
The Baobab Foundation is a non-profit organisation that conducts research into the ecology of baobab trees, supports conservation projects and improves the lives of communities who live among these trees. The Foundation provides a means for companies, start-ups and people around the globe, to make direct contributions to the care of these ancient trees and to the lives of the women and children who live around them.
A Culture of Caring
We’ve called it Creating a Culture of Caring because we believe caring for ourselves, others and our environment is so urgently needed in our world right now. Caring needs to become not just something we do now and then, but what we do on a continual basis so that to care becomes naturally embedded in our culture.
Baobab Foundation has three programs and a number of projects within each program
