Last Saturday we finished the first of our public reforestation days in Pabloyacu, near Moyobamba, Peru.
This was organized together with the Ecology faculty of the San Martin national University and local student group Jurcuna. In total 30 people came to our team with planting activities, all of whom also received training in planting and how best to ensure survival of the trees, especially important in sandy and hilly areas like Pabloyacu.
The main activity consisted of re-planting trees where previously planted saplings had not survived the dry season, and then planting in new areas which had been damaged by fires in previous years. We are very satisfied with how the day went, and will be carrying out a second day of planting with public help next Saturday, the 2nd of October. We hope to see you there!!
