I took this from a small aircraft recently, I think it might be hard for people to picture the peaks and the forests of Mount Kenya but this gives an idea of the change in habitats as you go up the mountain. Ironic that I was in a plane because we have had some support from a local airline to offset their carbon emissions. Helping us to plant trees is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint! Tropical forests absorb more CO2 than those in temperate climates and we are really expanding our indigenous tree planting projects right now. Our integrated approach to managing our projects means that this will help communities to have alternative incomes. I’m very excited about how many different projects we have running concurrently now. It means my travel to and from Mount Kenya has increased substantially. I’ll be basing myself in the north by the end of the year hopefully so that I can minimize my travel time and the time spent in Nairobi.
