Livhuwani’s baobab tree

Livhuwani tells us about her tree (Video)

Livhuwani Nelitshindwi planted her tree 6 years ago as part of the Baobab Guardians project.  The project started in 2014 encouraged people in rural villages to plant and protect baobab seedlings from being browsed by domestic animals.  When trees reach 3 meters high they are then safe from browsers and can continue to grow for the next few hundred years.  Livhuwani’s tree is a great example of the success of this project.
