Thursday 21st March 2019. The Azuero Earth Project.
March 21, 2019
It sounds as if it is a science fiction project, but no, it is very down to earth and helping the local farming community and the environment in the Azuero of Panama. Talking to us about the project this morning is one of it founders Ruth Metzel. By starting in the schools the message can be put out by the young: “Since 2010 we have been reaching out to local elementary schools closest to Azuero spider monkey habitat and their surrounding communities. We now work with students in six schools – Nuario, Vallerriquito, Oria Arriba, Los Asientos, Colan and Bajo Corral –
to explore the importance of spider monkeys in the local environment, the dangers these animals face from hunting, development, and deforestation, the uniqueness of the dry forest ecosystem, and how reforestation can increase farm productivity.”
