“Era Verde” Project
Within the strategies we use meaningful teaching, which ranges from games, art and fieldwork.
Starting from the direct and indirect interaction between local communities and natural resources in the study area, educational centers play an important role in the communities, making teachers and administrative agents responsible for inculcating contents and values in students.
Educating educators allows multiplying knowledge to students and other key people of the communities, which allows through the process to influence the change of conscience and behavior of communities, this allows the mitigation of direct environmental impacts to wildlife.
This program seeks to project the work of the Playa Tortuga Reserve with neighboring communities and abroad through activities that allow different audiences to reach.
Currently Reserva Playa Tortuga is an active member of the local “Bandera Azul Ecológica” committees from Ojochal and Playa Ventanas, among others.
Some of the activities undertaken during the year are:
- Cleaning of the Balso River
- Playa Tortuga and Playa Ventanas Cleaning
- Festival de Tortugas Marinas
- Summer camp, etc.
