BINHI 3.0: Helping Filipino farmers and communities, saving Philippine native tree species
Our project on reforestation successfully planted 6.8 million native and fruit tree seedlings on more than 10,000 hectares of land within its managed forests throughout the country. In 2021, we invested PHP 25.7 million for its environmental initiatives and watershed management programs under the BINHI Program, supporting foresters, botanists, wildlife biologists, and other private and public partners.
In the same year, the program reported 514 total unique species of fauna within the EDC-managed forests, wherein more than half of the species are endemic. BINHI also added 570 hectares of new plantation throughout its project sites and planted 581,000 quality seedlings in its central and satellite nurseries.
