WE KNOW GOOD PLANETS ARE HARD TO FIND….So this EARTH DAY we decided to plant trees & a seed in someone´s life!
Because there´s nothing more rewarding than helping others & giving back to our EARTH who offers us so many gifts, we joined a beautiful cause lead by Corpoayapel at Ayapel, Colombia.
Ayapel is the second most important wetland in our country. It´s important because it avoids floods by supporting the growth of rivers. Also, it`s the place where 64 species of birds migrate and 204 in total that inhabits the swamp.
During the mission, we planted trees and painted craftsmen’s houses.
The planting of trees is a solution that helps at the long term. Hand by hand with donations made by the private sector and citizens, CorpoAyapel aims to plant a million trees in order to reforest the entire area. This year, the goal is to reach 100 thousand of trees and, for this, they´ll need the help of everyone.
Short term solutions:
1) To stop doing illegal mining and improve natives living conditions.
2) Promote tourism, specifically ecotourism, promoting crafts made in the region.
“We LIVE on a PARADISE called EARTH and it´s our MISSION to PRESERVE it”
Ayapel is a refuge for 204 species of birds, 64 of them migratory. It is also one of the 13 RAMSAR wetlands in Colombia, the maximum protection worldwide for these ecosystems. Maaji took control of this experience and expanded Maajic in the region.
