Wildlife Works Wins World’s First Forestry Credits

Wildlife Works Carbon LLC, a U.S. conservation business, said its project to safeguard forests inKenya was the first of its kind to get voluntary carbon credits.

The program in the Kasigau Corridor, a strip of land 360 kilometers (225 miles) southeast of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, aims to reduce carbon emissions and help save 500,000 acres (202,000 hectares) of forest, Wildlife Works said today in an e- mailed statement. The Wildlife Works project is the first to get voluntary credits under a forest-protection program known as Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degredation, or REDD, it said.
