Kenyan Youths Renounce Crime to Protect Forests

Groups of reformed youths in Kenya are taking on the task of protecting their environment. The young adults, whose previous activies were a source of community tension, now report suspicious logging to village authorities in hopes of increasing Kenya's forrest cover from 7% to 10% by 2030. These youth came about this task through the Muiru Youth Reform Group, which allows them to plant seedlings in forrested areas in return for reporting suspicious activity to local governments. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/11/03/kenya-forests-youth-idUSL8N12Y1FD20151103
