Cáyoli Junior’s vocation is to create projects and pedagogical tools with and for students. During the school year 2018-2019 we worked with eight primary classes on the project “I adopt a mangrove tree”.
TAKE OWNERSHIP TO BETTER UNDERSTAND AND PROTECT
Cáyoli Junior is the pedagogy and environmental awareness component of the program. The principle is simple: to protect well, you have to know well. And it is clear that coastal natural environments are often little or poorly known. In order to strengthen this knowledge, Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes has been committed for 3 years in the development of innovative educational tools and projects around natural coastal areas.
It is in this context that the project “I adopt a mangrove tree” is part of, bringing together ecological restoration and awareness program. It was conducted throughout the school year with schoolchildren aged 7 to 10.
The principle of this project? Maintain and monitor the growth of young red mangrove seedlings and to plant them at the end of the year.
On June 6 and 7, 2019,, for the World Oceans Day, these young red mangroves were transplanted by the students to a degraded mangrove site to regenerate it.
Many thanks to the students and teachers for their involvement in this project!
