The challenge of our time

It is our mission to fight climate change by securing the future of wilderness and biodiversity through impactful rewilding projects which seek to have the highest environmental return on investment for our members.

Deforestation

We are losing forests at the rate of 7.56 million hectares per year

Extinction

Globally there are more than a million species threatened with extinction

Global Ecosystem collapse

400+ ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere threaten our global living environment.

Mossy Earth is an easy way for you to help rewild the world.

We have created a membership to empower everyone to contribute to the fight against climate change. Yes, individually, it’s a big task - but together we can have a huge impact.

Plant native trees

Our reforestation projects aim to restore ecosystem services, conserve biodiversity and combat the impacts of climate change.

Reforestation is not just about increasing tree cover. We look for projects that take into account species diversity and functionality, how trees can provide ecosystem services like soil stabilization and water purification, and their role in providing habitat for local flora and fauna.

Our reforestation projects are an important part of our wider rewilding efforts, which is why we select reforestation projects that will, above all, help to rewild degraded landscapes.

Protect and support wildlife

Recent studies have shown that rewilding is key to restoring biodiversity and fighting climate change. Restoring just 15% of degraded lands in critical areas could avoid 60% of expected species extinction, and capture 30% of the CO2 increase in the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution.

We have developed a rewilding project selection process that focuses on protecting threatened ecosystems and actively supporting their restoration.

Optimised for impact

To be suitable, each project must aim to achieve one or more of these objectives that are central to rewilding.

  • Improve habitat integrity and connectivity
  • Result in increased carbon sequestration
  • Restore biodiversity and/ or abundance of native species
  • Prevent spread of invasive species, floods, and soil degradation

The Mossy Earth member account

Stay involved every step of the way

We have made it part of our mission to deliver transparency through technology. This means that we do our best to develop the tools our members need to evaluate the impact of our rewilding and reforestation efforts for themselves.

You have the opportunity to participate in project decisions, direct contact with the team and receive 360° photos, GPS coordinates, camera trap footage and regular on the ground updates.

Being open and transparent in this way helps us develop trust and to get members engaged with our projects at a deeper level.
