Koromi River, Kenya
Camp Koromi River, located in the semi-arid climate of the hinterland of Malindi, is working towards the restoration of 202 hectares of land where massive deforestation is prevalent as well as active pastoralism. The outcome of these activities has led to ecosystem deterioration which is severely threatening the land's biodiversity. There is luckily still a mix of indigenous trees and shrubs on the land, but many of the oldest trees have been cut down, leaving many parts of the land stripped and vulnerable to further erosion.
Since the conception of Camp Koromi River, 10,000 Melia trees, 1,500 moringa trees, and over 25,000 indigenous trees have been planted on 16 hectares of land. The camp is also starting to harvest rainwater from the riverbed of the Koromi seasonal river to begin other sustainable agricultural endeavors as well as to lessen the negative impacts of traditional irrigation.
