Puerto launches proactive nature programme
The garden of the former convent of Santo Domingo in Puerto de la Cruz was the setting for the presentation of PROACTIV @ S POR NATURALEZA 2019.
This environmental programme is organised by Puerto council with the close collaboration of the Red Cross, the Rambla de Castro Nature Hall and the volunteer office of the Cabildo de Tenerife.
The main objective is to highlight to the general public the importance of the environment with its unique characteristics and starting at an early age through schools.
The programme, which will be publicised on the website www.puertodelacruz.es and www.aularambladecastro.es (Puerto de la Cruz), offers free activities such as routes, interpretive visits, collaboration with environmental entities, control of invasive alien species, protection of endangered species of flora and fauna and actions directed at students of the local schools and institutes.
Environment councillor Juan Carlos Marrero said: “We have managed, technicians and politicians, to develop an environmental programme that is considered, from many sectors, as the most complete and important of the island of Tenerife, made possible thanks to the great team that works in the realisation of events and in the monthly monitoring of the programming. With a well-tuned team, we have been able to include those requests that come to us and thus achieve a real and effective citizen participation. “
