Tree Planting with Echo Foundation at Seru Largu
January 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm AST
Echo warmly invites everyone to their beautiful enclosure on Seru Largu for the first tree planting event in this enclosure. This area was fenced off two years ago, and it is already showing first signs of regeneration. Echo plans on planting up to 1000 trees, including Palu di Boneiru, Kamari, Kibrahatcha, and many more to further advance this positive trend.
The enclosure on Seru Largu is situated in the southern corner of the higher limestone terraces and plateau lands of Bonaire. It provides much-needed protection to increase the biodiversity and protect the native trees enabling them to naturally regenerate without being affected by introduced herbivores.
If you are interested in joining the event, the most important information can be found below:
– Meet at 9:00 AM in the Seru Largu parking (you can also join later if you are not available at 9:00 AM)
– bring comfortable clothes & shoes (they might get dirty) sunscreen and gardening gloves, if desired
– food & drinks for all volunteers will be provided
– the event will end around 12:00 Noon
Reforestation on Seru Largu will not only result in a refuge for the endangered Yellow-shouldered Amazon Parrot but also result in a beautiful public park to visit for locals and tourists alike!
