To mobilise the global population towards positive planet action

Regenerating an environment where the symbiotic relationship of nature and humanity is realised.

To be the global operating system for facilitating the relationship between nature and people.

The Baobab Tree, known as “The Tree of Life”, can provide food, water, and shelter to both wildlife and the communities that live around them, it is a true African icon that has been the community board room for thousands of years.

The circle of life continues to act as the power behind our planet, where we believe in digitally uniting humanity, towards a just future for both nature and people.

Humans have survived thanks to ‘community’, where communication and collaboration drive positive change.

Why we exist

Baotree promotes a new way to facilitate the interface between humans and nature.

The world’s most biodiverse rich areas often coexist with the most marginalised communities, and not necessarily in harmony. There is an opportunity to empower these communities to take up their rights as custodians of this biodiversity. Enabling behavioural and attitudinal changes are a massive opportunity for positive impact.

Baotree exists to enlighten humanity on the value of the natural world around them by mobilising them to help protect our world. It is through collaboration, connection and community that we can create a world where wildlife and people thrive together.
