The popular Mexican Caribbean destination, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo has been receiving in recent months a whole greener look thanks to the efforts to reforest such beautiful and appealing destination, the trees have been planted all over town and also at the coastal dune, which is extremely important for the beach conservation.
Following Federal and State governmental policies on the conservation of environment, municipal government of Solidaridad, Quintana Roo has instated the program “Reforesting Solidaridad” two years ago with which 25,071 trees have been planted in different areas of the municipality, such as schools, green areas, traffic medians and the coastal dune.
“With these actions… we strengthen a greener municipality for future generations and preserve the beauty of the main attraction of the region that is the ecosystem”, said the mayor of Solidaridad, Mauricio Góngora, quoted on an article from local daily, Diario Respuesta.
Through the program, they have been able to fulfill the goals of ecologic restoration in order to guarantee the growth and permanence of local vegetation, as well as eliminating those factors that prevent natural regeneration, allowing the natural process to continue; as well as counteract beach erosion.
This achievement has been accomplished through the efforts and participation of over 5 thousand people from organizations, schools, associations and companies, who planted thousands of trees of different local species such as: Chaca, Chi’it, Akitz, Ciricote, Sacnicte, Ramon, Mahogany, Cedar; and for the beach areas: Seagrape, beach Ciricote, Riñoninas, Sea lettuce, and Marasí lilies.
A great effort that could and should have amazing benefits for the community, now it’s time for all the citizens and visitors to care for these new vegetation that will give their city a greener look, as well as cleaner air.
