The Chimborazo Prefecture, through the Environmental Management Directorate, continues to green fields and moors in communities, parishes and cantons of our province. 128,450 native plants of the species were delivered; Aliso, Tilo, Yagual, Puma maqui, Higuerón, Arrayán, Laurel, Jaranda, Caña Guadua, Cedro, among others.
And 33,370 fruit plants; cocoa, orange, blackberry, taxo, ubilla, avocado, peach, tree tomato, claudia, lemon and apple.
In this way, the implementation of the campaign is being carried out; “Sowing for Life Chimborazo”, First Phase, where the areas that require increasing plant cover are identified in order to preserve natural resources.
Day by day, the prefect, Dr. Juan Pablo Cruz, continues to deliver these plants that contribute to the care of fragile ecosystems such as; moors, native forests and water sources, with the application of good environmental practices and the generation of environmental conservation agreements with local stakeholders.
“Recovering plant cover and biodiversity in degraded areas, through the establishment of plantations for the conservation of natural resources with the use of native plants and fruit trees, is one of its main objectives,” said Alfredo Chuquimarca, Director of Environmental Management.
