Vía Segura Project

Planet Drum Foundation has been invited by the Sucre County Municipality to participate in an ambitious project to improve 32 kilometers of highway between Bahía de Caráquez and San Clemente, the closest town to the south.

The project plans to improve the security, cellphone reception, emergency services, and the environment over the next four years and relies on cooperation between various institutions, including the national electric and telecommunications companies, police, fire, and transit departments.

Planet Drum will provide native trees and shrubs from its greenhouse as well as tree planting consultancy to ensure effective revegetation along the highway.
