This conservation initiative and launch of the TheTreeApp is endorsed and supported by

AAGE V. Jensen Charity Foundation

The objective of the Aage V. Jensen Charity Foundation is nature conservation and wildlife protection.
The Foundation operates worldwide via ownership of nature reserves as well as support of research and nature projects. The Foundation is committed to preserving, protecting and developing nature in all its diversity. The aim is to communicate the importance of protecting endangered wildlife and natural habitats, and to give the general public the opportunity to experience a rich and diverse nature – now and forever.
Since 1999 the Foundation has owned and developed a 38,000 ha nature reserve in South Africa, Maremani Nature Reserve, with the purpose of restoring nature and wildlife to its original and pristine state.
