Bahamas: Sandals Foundation to plant 10K trees by June 2022 to strengthen Caribbean environmental conservation efforts

EXUMA, BAHAMAS — As organizations around the world mobilize their networks to commemorate Earth Day on April 22, Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International (SRI), is intensifying its Caribbean conservation efforts by committing to plant 10,000 trees by June 2022.

The effort forms part of a wider Caribbean Tree Planting Project coordinated by the Caribbean Philanthropic Alliance in collaboration with Trees That Feed Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative and other partners to plant one million trees across 14 Caribbean countries by June next year.

Over the last 12 years, the Sandals Foundation has engaged local schools, community groups, partners, team members, travel agents and guests to plant more than 17,000 trees across the Caribbean.

This intensified tree planting mission, while taking on a more controlled approach in line with national COVID-19 protocols, will undoubtedly strengthen the region’s climate resilience as it empowers even more people to take action in line with this year’s Earth Day theme to “Restore Our Earth”.
