WE WILL PLANT 500 PALO SANTO TREES IN EDUCATIONAL UNITS

Climate change is imminently approaching. Sometimes there is a feeling that it is advancing so fast that it makes our actions look few or small. However, after 7 years of carrying out environmental prevention activities and projects, it can be seen that, although much has been done, there is still more to do. During our journey in protecting the dry forest ecosystem, we have managed to restore a primary forest, reforesting it with native species, which serves as a pilot project to replicate it in different dry areas in Ecuador.

This journey full of wisdom and knowledge has made it possible for us to reach the sum of 11,000 Palo Santo trees, planted in different areas of the province of Manabí - Ecuador.

Continuing with our campaign #PaloSantoDoneRight. After two years of the pandemic, educational institutions return to face-to-face classes in Ecuador, which is why we want to share with young people the information that we have collected in these years of research, where we have not stopped discovering a lot of scientific data about the dry forests and our sacred wood, Palo Santo.

We have considered reforesting 500 Palo Santo trees in partnership with 10 Educational Units in the urban areas of the city of Manta - Ecuador (which is dry forest indeed). This time we have chosen the urban area, because we are aware that it is alarming how trees and endogenous species of our territory are cut down, in exchange for cement buildings and asphalt streets.

We have good news!

Everything has started very well, we have managed to establish a link with two Educational Institutions, the "FE Y ALEGRÍA #3" school, and the "JOSÉ SALAZAR" school, where the following will take place:

- Training and exchange of knowledge to prevent climate change caused by deforestation and the disappearance of green areas in the city. Educate students, creating awareness for the care of tree species.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

- Development of a day of reforestation of 50 Palo Santo trees per educational institution. Trees will be planted by their students.

- Georeferencing of each reforested tree to have constant monitoring and take care of its growth.

(We've chosen Palo Santo bursera graveolens, as this species is endemic of the dry forest. It is of low maintenance as it can remain without water for a long period of time.)

Caring for our ecosystems is substantial, especially the dry forest, which is one of the most important in South America, due to its ability to store carbon, something very important, since it helps reduce temperatures caused by global warming.

Soon we will tell you more about this project, we want you to experience it with us wherever you are! where young people will learn to take care of the environment.
