Cancun, Q.R. — More than 1,700 trees have been replanted around the city of Cancun. Over the weekend, Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta participated in another reforestation project to recover degraded and eroded areas.
The Municipal Reforestation Program is in coordination with the Benito Juárez City Council and the General Directorate of Ecology. Peralta says the purpose is to rescue and dignify degraded or eroded areas to recover the vegetation of the site.
Throughout the first half of the year, Peralta has organized seven reforestation days in different parts of the city, managing to plant 1,756 trees of eleven different native species. To date, the reforestation program has covered a total of 12,800 square meters of land.
These tasks, in which public servants, volunteers, institutions and society in general participate, contribute to reducing the high temperatures in the urban sprawl, therefore, the care and protection of these plants must be the responsibility of all Cancun residents.
In addition to the reforestation program, the Government of Cancun, through the General Directorate of Public Services, carries out permanent cleaning of road medians and landscaped areas to ensure the public spaces remain in good condition.
