The forests on the Island of Nende in the remote Temotu Province, East Solomon Islands cover >40,000ha. These beautiful forests provide shelter, water, custom medicine, habitat for endangered species, building materials and food.
Forests are an incredibly important habitat for several reasons. In our project areas, they are home to critically endangered species such as the Temotu ground Dove. Forests provide a suite of ecosystem services such as providing clean water, reducing landslides and erosion, regulating local weather patterns as well as providing food and materials for shelter for the local people that live in and rely on these forests.
