People work on reforesting to protect aquifers.

People in the area of Los Santos devoted themselves to intense reforestation of Mount La Trinidad forest which suffered last year 2008 a terrible fire that swept over 45 acres and put in grave danger important aquifers for the area.

Reforestation efforts aim to protect these waters, the project required an extensive planning, a task that had the support of institutions such as the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad, ICE, College of Environmental Law and Natural Resources (Cedarena) and the private company, the Guardian Tork SCA Water program.

Thanks to this project, people successfully replanted until 8.7 hectares, equivalent to 4,700 square meters, which directly benefit the more than 35 thousand citizens of the three counties of the Los Santos.
