VALLE SAGRADO VERDE
Valle Sagrado Verde: Protecting and Preserving the Nature of Ollantaytambo! We were born out of concern for climate change, forest fires, and the loss of endemic species. We have been working since 2020 with prevention, conservation, and ecological restoration brigades. Join the change with us!
PREVENT, PRESERVE, AND RESTORE THE SACRED VALLEY
It is our responsibility to protect and restore the natural areas of our land so that they regain their original beauty and abundance. Our goal is for the communities/sectors within the Valley floor to achieve the conservation, preservation, and care of their natural spaces through the formation and work of forest brigades, the establishment of local park rangers, and ecological restoration within their community/sector.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVENTING FOREST FIRES
Preventing fires protects biodiversity and prevents the destruction of natural habitats and endangered species
Protection of Natural Resources:
Fire prevention is essential to protect forests, maintain the quality of natural resources, and ensure their availability for local communities.
Community Safety and Well-being:
Fire prevention protects communities and their well-being.
A FOREST OF NATIVE TREES IS THE HOME FOR HUNDREDS OF SPECIES.
"Why Should We Care for Our Forests?
Caring for and conserving our forests in the Sacred Valley is essential to protect biodiversity, air and water quality, prevent natural disasters, mitigate climate change, and preserve the beauty and vital resources for communities. Join our mission for a sustainable future in harmony with nature.
The brigades are community volunteers (minimum of 10 people) trained and equipped to prevent and control forest fires. They raise awareness and promote prevention within the community.
It involves protecting and maintaining the natural areas of the community to preserve the flora, fauna, soil, and water through ecological pruning campaigns, cleaning, monitoring, irrigation, and maintenance.
"Reforestation with native species such as Queuña, Chachacomo, Molle, etc., is essential in the strategy of water planting and harvesting. These trees retain and filter water from the environment into aquifers, significantly reducing runoff."
