The project seeks to conserve and protect the basins of the Ancho rivers, Black and Maluisa, through native tropical forest species that allow the restoration of these ecosystems.
Through the rehabilitation of 470 hectares of forest in the watercourses of the Ancho rivers, Black and Maluisa (Dibulla), Corpoguajira bets on the protection and conservation of these basins, contributing to the natural functions of the ecosystems in the area and guaranteeing recovery processes that mitigate the effects of climate change.
Samuel Lanao Robles, General Manager Corpoguajira, explained that this project benefits 17 Veredas de Dibulla, allowing the improvement of the water sources supplying the populated and rural centers of this municipality. In addition, helps the return of fauna species due to the optimization of ecological corridors and the rescue of forest resources.
“With the implementation of this project we seek to protect the soil from erosion, prevent landslides and flash floods. We also promote the recovery of nutrients from hydrographic basins. We are implementing a purely rural reforestation that consists of carrying out a massive planting of trees on surfaces that have been deforested, in this way we aim at the rehabilitation of these ecosystems”.
Likewise, indicated that the works are carried out jointly with the Mega Ambiental consortium, and that the project contributes to the restoration of properties that have been affected by forest fires and indiscriminate human intervention, in the basins and micro-basins of the Jerez rivers, Reeds, Width, Maluisa, Saint Clare, broken Andrea, sand creek, The Trojas, Lizard and Mariamine.
The species used in the reforestation activities are native to the tropical dry forest, among them snail, mahogany, ceiba, Oak, fine heart, puy, carob, earmuff, cedar and guaimaro.
Finally, The environmental authority indicated that within the framework of these works, environmental awareness workshops have been carried out in the beneficiary communities and the project's area of influence..
