The first year of Samoa’s national carbon offsetting programme through tree planting is coming to a close in December and Samoa Conservation Society (S.C.S.) is excited to continue the scheme into the future.
Thirty youth from Sa’aga, Poutasi and Saleilua, nine of whom are women, have been working a week per month to plant trees in O le Pupu Pue National Park, paid for by travellers to Samoa trying to offset the impact of their flights.
“We’re also setting them up for future jobs to do with the environment,” she said.
