The "Adopt a Tree Campaign" was initiated by WWF-India in 2005 with the aim of encouraging both individuals & organizations to plant & care for native species of trees across India. Since then, thousands of trees have been planted & cared for by people, who send us updates & photos on how their trees are doing.
In 2018, the campaign ran in Hyderabad, Delhi, Valsad, Guwahati, Kolkata & Udaipur from July 2018 to September 2018 where free saplings were distributed–& people showed their support towards a healthier planet not just by planting the sapling but by nurturing it to life & being responsible for its growth. Across the 6 cities, more than 20000 saplings were distributed with more than 11,000 of these being distributed in Delhi alone.
In 2019, the campaign aims to distribute 60,000 saplings across India & take the initiative forward through engaging corporates, RWAs and citizens.
