Reforestation with coconut palms

This morning more than 60 coconut plants were planted by a dozen workers in the tourist industry, accompanied by several children, along the walkway of the Salina Grande lake, near the Paseo de las Aves Avenue, in colonia La Gloria. Representatives of hotel and restaurant unions participated in this effort including the leader of the local branch of the Revolutionary Confederation of Workers and Peasants (CROC), Román Maldonado Euán, who said that the participation of the union in this green campaign is part of a permanent program. He explained that on this day they cleared the area before they reforested it with coconut palms, and the children who joined enjoyed the event. In recent years, CROC members have frequently done work in this program at locations of interest as part of a comprehensive plan by the union to promote collective awareness about the environment, health. and to instill a sense of responsibility in promoting an environment conducive to healthy family life.
One of the workers said, "That's why we invite children, so they will become aware of the need to work together so that our surroundings are not chaotic, but on the contrary there is harmony with nature and that brings peace and tranquility for the people who collaborate and understand the fundamental thing is to harmonize with everything that surrounds us.".
However, residents who support this cause complain about mangroves being logged from the area of the Makax lagoon, and for construction near the Aeropuerto Salina.
Entrepreneurs interested in recovering beaches

Two companies have expressed their willingness to participate in the replacement of the geotubes at the extreme west of Playa Norte to stop the erosion that has affected the area in recent years. Carlos Cervera Peraza is in favor of a co-investment between authorities and private individuals. At least 10,000 square meters of sand have been lost to the sea, and the water is reaching the bases of buildings, docks, palaps, and has uprooted some ornamental plants. This erosion is advancing this winter, with the damaging northern winds.
Seven geotubes need to be replaced in an area of 300 meters of distance, while the rest of te barriers which were installed in 2007 are still functioning, since they are regularly maintained by the concession holders in the area. Sr. Cervera said he has received advice from specialists and less than a million pesos are needed to replace the 'whales', and he hopes this government will have a better attitude about this than the previous one.
