New Program is Carbon Offsetting program.
This program is kind of payment for the carbon you had produced before you reach this national park (for example you had paid lots of money for your flight to reach this national park, your flight produces a lot of carbon). Then here you will have time to exchange the carbon from your flight or all the transportation you had used with growing new trees that will produce Oxygen from their photosynthesis.
This program is co-operated with the villagers near the National Park. The villagers will prepare the endemic trees on the plastic bag. Then we will buy the trees from them as an alternative income. We hope that this program will help to encourage their income and it is also an educational program both for the local people and the tourist. At the same time we are also recycle the plastic bag from their village as well. This program is mutual benefit for everybody and the environment. This program will support us to:
Reduce carbon effect
