Para La Naturaleza blog entry now available on YouTube

By The Star Staff

The conversation “Viveros: Just the Beginning in Mitigating Climate Change” with Ahmed Pérez Lugo, superintendent of the non-governmental group Para La Naturaleza’s Reforestation Unit, is now available on the organization’s YouTube channel.

The event took place on Nov. 15, 2023 and was an urgent talk, where the importance of the production, planting and maintenance of tree and shrub species, and the positive impact of reforestation in the context of climate change, was emphasized.

The actions taken to improve habitats in natural and urban areas, in addition to protecting biodiversity, are essential efforts for the conservation of Puerto Rico’s ecosystems, according to a press release from Para La Naturaleza. The Reforestation Unit, through its nurseries of native and endemic trees, and its plantings, did such work throughout the past year.

“We thank Ahmed for sharing his knowledge and experience to provide solutions to the environmental crisis facing the planet, and we celebrate the presence of those who came together and participated live in this educational dialogue,” Pérez Lugo said. “We invite you to listen and share the conference and the photo gallery of the event.”
