Overview

Ethiopia was once blanketed in dense vegetation, but over the past century, humans have cleared nearly all of the country’s native forests for agriculture. But there’s one notable exception: the area immediately surrounding Orthodox churches. Today, the churches’ role in protecting these sacred pockets of diversity — and encouraging the community to be their stewards — is more important than ever.
