Environmental Conservation Workshops

By Karol Hermoza | Program Manager

Dear Supporters,

 

In December 2019, we continued our environmental conservation workshops at three more schools, where children showed their knowledge in compost and organic/inorganic products. These educational sessions help children to understand the importance of preserving water and the environment surrounding it. 

 

In January 2020, GVI volunteers came back to one of our biggest 2019 projects: the fencing of the wetland ‘Media Luna’ at Valle Chosica community. We were very excited to check on the improvement of these water sources in less than a year. The community has closed all entrances for animals not to contaminate the water and they have also planted ‘ceticio’ around it. This native plant will grow to be a live fence for this area. On the other hand, two more birds’ nests have been established on the wetland, making a total of 3 nests which improves the fauna of the ‘Media Luna’. Still volunteers had a cleaning session where we found plastic bottles and bags, which means that the educational aspect still needs to be improved. 

 

As part of our activities to contribute to the preservation of water, a main activity has been reforestation. In the Piuray micro basin there is a great amount of eucalyptus, a foreign plant, that takes much of the underground water. For this reason, one of our main activities during the rainy season (January to March) is to plant native plants that will not take that much water and preserve the environment in a much better way. Up to now, volunteers have planted over 1,000 plants with the Huaynas de Pumapata association in the Pongobamba community. 



Preserving water in this area and teaching community members about the importance of this vital resource is a long way to come. We believe that a combination of green infrastructure and education along the Chinchero district is essential to continue the preservation of water around the Piuray lagoon. Children and adults are very much aware of what needs to be done, they just need a small push to continue their work in environmental conservation.  We will continue to support the most traditional practices that community members still preserve in order to monitor the water in this area. Education is still a great asset our volunteers can support, in 2020 we plan to expand our workshops in water conservations to more schools in the micro basin and in the Chinchero district. Reforestation has been one the main activities this past month and has shown how the collaboration of the community can improve their environment and water. 

 

Thank you to our Donors, Fundraisers and Supporters! 

 

With Gratitude,
