Help Restore One Million Hectares of Philippine Forests

Join Haribon's One Million-Hectare Challenge! 

What is the Million-Hectare Challenge (MHC)? The Million Hectare Challenge urges all Filipinos to support Haribon's ROAD TO 2020 campaign, which aims to restore 1 million hectares of forests by year 2020 using native tree species

Why should you join? Rainforests are our primary source of water.? Healthy Rainforests prevent soil erosion and enhance biodiversity.? In the past few years, the Philippines has seen an increase in natural disasters such as killer landslides, droughts, floods, as well as water crises - all telling signs of the state of degradation of our rainforests.? To date, we have 22.08% (Philippine forestry statistics, 2007) forest cover left and we need 54% more to maintain ecological processes in the country.

Hit the road!
 Help raise 3 million pesos for ROAD TO 2020. Funds generated from the Million-Hectare Challenge event will be used to support tree-planting activities, promotion of environment-friendly and sustainable livelihood options for local communities, establishment and maintenance of indigenous tree nurseries, awareness-raising and capacity building among communities.
