"Science and school radio gather over six hundred students during “Encuentros bajo el cielo” "

Over six hundred students gathered last month in the Street Primero de Mayo, in Puerto del Rosario, in order to municipality of Pajara, in order to fight the effects of desertification in this area. They have repaired the perimeter fences, the gates of those corrals and they have planted around two hundred endemic specimens from that area, amongst other actions. In order to reduce the effects of desertification, the Cabildo has initiated various projects of reforestation in various areas of the island. According to the president of the Cabildo, «those actions always require maintenance initiatives, otherwise, it wouldn't be possible to preserve the habitats of those areas and slow down the erosion process». On the other hand, the Environment Councillor, Natalia Évora, indicated that ''Fuerteventura is one of the islands on the archipelago that is most affected by desertification, mostly because of the loss of vegetal cover, which is the reason why reforestation is essential in order to try to reduce this phenomenon of loss of ground, with projects that have been developed over the years''. The species were obtained thanks to the study of the plants present on the massif of Jandía, carried out by Rubén Hernández Cerdeña, a scientific project financed by the Cabildo. For the plantation, the Cabildo benefited from the cooperation of the programme of actions for the preservation of the environment of the Canaries that is carried out by the Council of Sustainability of the Canarian Government, the Foundation of La Caixa bank and the CajaCanarias Foundation through their collaboration agreement.
