More than 65 children participated in Steffanny’s afternoon of discovery and relaxation around the theme of conservation. The children of Mahuizo and Santa Lucia were able to share their feelings and their vision of the environments they live in during collective outdoor awareness activities.
Already very young, they are aware of the world around them and of their interdependence with the present biodiversity. The parents, who are often hunters, fishermen, farmers or foresters, all live off what the forest offers them. A relationship that sometimes tends to diminish the present resources essential to the survival of local communities.
During several afternoons, we were able to laugh and exchange with them anecdotes of their lives highlighting their relationship with nature. A moment of playful reflection to highlight the richness of the exceptional environment of the reserve and the economic and social interest that its conservation represents for these villages.
