2020 Reforestation Completed!

Around 500 women, men, and children from nine local communities planted 21,040 trees on 23.6 hectares! Due to the physical distancing requirements necessary to comply with the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, each group reforesting averaged 25 people all wearing personal protective gear. An additional 10 hectares were reforested with 8,000 trees in Carpinteros indigenous community to restore the forest under their care as indicated by the forest management plan of the MBBR’s buffer zone. Everything ran smoothly and we’re happy to report that no one has tested positive for COVID-19.

Don Pedro’s statement about not letting the virus stop them from reforesting turned out to be true. Following up with him, he remarked “I told you we would manage and thanks to the parents and teachers who kindly watered the trees in the nurseries when schools closed down, our trees were in great shape and will continue doing so until the pandemic ends.”

Additionally, we built four fuel-efficient stoves and nine cisterns to capture rainwater in four communities.

MBF and Alternare are committed to keeping people safe and we have managed to do so, keeping people employed and dedicated to the conservation of the overwintering forests.

We thank you, our devoted supporters for helping us keep our commitment to the people, the forests, and the monarchs! We couldn’t do this without you.
