Preservation of Baobabs

Published: 11th Apr, 2024


In a groundbreaking conservation endeavour, the Global Society for the Preservation of Baobabs and Mangroves (GSPBM) has initiated a mission to rejuvenate the iconic baobab trees through seedling transplantation. 


  • Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata) is native to the African savannah where the climate is extremely dry and arid.
  • Ecologically, baobabs are keystone species in Madagascar's unique landscapes.
  • Their massive trunks and extensive root systems are vital for storing water in arid environments, providing a critical resource for both the trees and the surrounding ecosystem during drought periods.
  • It is a succulent, which means that during the rainy season it absorbs and stores water.
  • Baobab trees grow in 32 African countries. They can live for up to 5,000 years, reach up to 30 metres high and up to an enormous 50 metres in circumference.
  • It has a fruit that is one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world. Baobab is the only fruit in the world that dries naturally on its branch.
