TEMA - Helping Carbon Offset since 1992

so far we have reached nearly 4 million children through nature education and awareness studies


 Would you like to support our nature against the carbon footprint we leave ?

Here at Diamond Star Experience, we are in cooperation with Tema, Turkey's foundation for reforestation and the protection of Natural Habitats;  https://www.tema.org.tr/en .

Do you know that an average tree can absorb 21-25kg of carbondioxide from the atmosphere every year ? Now you can support sustainable forestry by contributing in this project and turn your carbon footprints into a "must do” investment for our planet. 

Why Reforestation Matters:

Forests play a vital role in maintaining ecological balance, combating climate change, and providing habitats for countless species of plants and animals. By participating in reforestation, we aim to:

  1. Combat Deforestation: Reforestation helps restore areas affected by deforestation, ensuring that these ecosystems thrive once again.
  2. Carbon Offset: Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping mitigate climate change and reduce our carbon footprint.
  3. Protect Biodiversity: Forests are home to diverse wildlife, and reforestation efforts safeguard these habitats, preserving biodiversity.
  4. Support Local Communities: Reforestation projects often provide employment opportunities for local communities, contributing to their well-being.

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to our planet. To protect our planet and its people from catastrophic effects, we need to keep global warming well below 2oC. We can only meet this goal if everybody – governments, businesses, the public sector and individuals – commits to ambitious action.
