In order to continue working for the restoration and conservation of reefs, the Tinglar environmental projects agency and the Sea Something Foundation, with the support of Cerveza Corona, carried out a massive coral transplant day in the Bay of Palmar de Ocoa.
This action is carried out within the framework of the #coronareefs program that began its execution on May 13 with the certification of seven fishermen as Open Water divers, with the aim of contributing to the environmental restoration of the area and educating fishermen, as well as help them improve their way of life through tourist excursions in the reef areas, diving.
The collection and transplantation were carried out with the technical support of the Dominican Coastal Restoration Consortium, the Dominican Reef Network (RAD), the Dominican Foundation for Marine Studies (Fudemar), the Cap Cana Foundation, the Deep Green Foundation, the Gus Diver Center diving school and the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.
Other elements to be discussed are contamination by solid and plastic waste, financing to face climate change, and the creation of a green post-Covid-19 recovery fund that will allow progress in a sustainable manner.
“At the Ibero-American Summit of Ministers and Ministers, which takes place within the framework of the Ibero-American Secretariat, we will establish positions for the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State to be held in 2023. The Dominican Republic is the host country or Secretary Pro Tempore of the SEGIB together with the Ibero-American Secretariat”, explained Milagros De Camps, Vice Minister of International Cooperation of the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources.
Within this dynamic is the protection of marine coral reefs, one of the main sources of carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption, which contributes to the fight against climate change.
