Rehabilitate the biological corridor of 2.9 hectares of the banks of the Torres River in the first kilometer of the routes, by planting of 680 individuals of 49 different native, endangered and endemic species and elimination of the invasive genus called elephant grass that is inhibiting the growth of the native species in an area of 4000 m2/43000 ft2. A total requirement of 200 citizen volunteers from the communities is estimated, during 9 months.
In San Jose, on the banks of the Torres River, where the first km of Rutas Naturbanas will be enabled, there are 2.9 acres severely affected by invasive species and deforested areas that require rehabilitation of forest cover. About 43000 ft2 of river retreat area is degraded and dominated by invasive species such as bamboo and elephant grass. Its management is urgent since it is a barrier on the site that inhibits the growth of the native species as well as damaging the habitat of the wildlife
Rehabilitation of the biological corridor increases the diversity of ecosystem services, habitat and biological connectivity for hundreds of wild populations that still find refuge in the middle of the urban matrix. 600,000 nearby inhabitants will be able to access public spaces for active mobility, recreation and physical activity, free from noise and pollution, which reinforces feelings of appropriation of the communities to collaborate in benefit of the local environment.
Rehabilitation of the biological corridor increases the diversity of ecosystem services, habitat and biological connectivity for hundreds of wild populations that still find refuge in the middle of the urban matrix like amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals such as bats, three and two-toed sloths, common opossums, coatis, porcupines, coyotes, raccoons and more. Plant pioneering trees, endangered and endemic species will accelerate forest regeneration, protect the soil against erosion.
