Dry Forest Project Update (February 2022)

Dear Friends,

A Rocha Peru's Dry Forest Project has made significant strides in performing project activities over the last few months.  The project conducted Eco-school training workshops during the period within Tecapa Secondary School.  Workshops explored several topics such as medicinal plants, composting, land preparation and irrigation for planting vegetables, restoration of the dry forest ecosystem, pest control, and many more. Mi Mundo y Yo (My World and I) Eco-School also installed a garden where students planted vegetables like radish, beet, spinach, and carrots.  The harvest was distributed among the members of the eco-school.

In addition, the project team conducted a tour of the Venturosa Forest located in San Pedro de Lloc to determine the number of hectares present, to make an inventory of flora and fauna, and to observe the state of the forest.  The forest registered a richness of 6 species with Prosopis ssp "Algarrobo" dominating.  Biologist Homan Castillo Benitez helped monitor and identify birds in the Venturosa Forest.

Another important achievement has been the installation of 30 ecological cookstoves in households located in Jatanca and Santa Maria. The cookstoves were locally manufactured and constructed.   They reduce household firewood consumption.    In the most recent evaluation, locals recognized benefits to their health as using ecological stoves (with a chimney) avoids pollution inside the homes.

The project put on its first photographic event in November and December 2021.  The photography exhibition was on display at the Casa Museo Raimondi in San Pedro de Lloc, the Tecapa Primary School, and the Ex-Railway of Pacasmayo.  The exhibition showcased project photos of conservation, research, and environmental education activities to spread awareness of the project and its achievements since 2018. 

Thank you for being a part of our team of supporters to make our project a reality.  We are grateful for everything you have helped us create.

 Stay safe and well.
