First eco-citizen worksite in Bourail - New Caledonia
On Saturday July 1, an eco-citizen worksite in Bourail, New Caledonia, enabled to plant the first 870 trees on the banks of the Néra river. More than 15,000 additional trees will be planted over the next 2 years.
This planting project is helping to develop coastal ecosystems and watersheds, in the sensitive Néra catchment area (Bourail), so that they are more resilient to the global pressures of climate change. This will preserve access to natural resources, contribute to food security and maintain the activities of the Caledonians who depend on them (fishermen, farmers, surrounding communities, etc.).
Well done to all those who took part in this first planting for the benefit of people and nature!
