Bahia Reforestra a Todo Pulmón

Local ecological groups from Bahía worked together on Saturday, February 20th, as part of a provincial-wide reforestation effort coordinated by CORFAM (the provincial government’s reforestation program). Representatives from the Bahía municipality, Cordillera del Bálsamo biological corridor, Cerro Seco biological reserve, Planet Drum, and students from Fanny de Baird, Interamericano high schools and the Catholic University all collaborated with Global Student Embassy to plant approximately 800 trees in a single morning at one of their reforestation sites near the Fanca neighborhood.

Planet Drum donated 150 native fruit trees which were planted along the perimeter of the lowest part of the hillsides. The rest of the hillside was planted with native forest species for habitat restoration and erosion control.
