OAXACA, The Environment Coordination of the Alfredo Harp Helú Oaxaca Foundation urged the general population to take care of our habitat and restore the land by reforesting.
On the occasion of International Mother Earth Day, the foundation called on people to raise awareness and take care of their natural environment.
Earth Day or International Mother Earth Day, is a celebration held on April 22 of each year, with the aim of raising awareness among people about the natural problems that exist in the world, such as global warming and the Covid 19 pandemic.
For its part, the Alfredo Harp Helú Foundation shared some recommendations to avoid forest fires
• Avoid throwing cigarette butts
• Avoid making bonfires in wooded areas.
• If you see a fire, report it so it can be put out in time.
• And help reforestation.
Given the fires that have been reported in recent days in Oaxaca, the Environment Coordination supported with the social reforestation program promoted by the FAHHO, 10,000 trees for 10 affected hectares of the Santo Tomás Quieri forest.
And in the Ixtlán nursery in the Sierra Norte de Oaxaca, it has the production of 450 thousand trees to support social reforestation in that region.
