The President of Hidrocaribe Wimer Moreno received us at the Water Technical Table 1 and 2 of the El Morro tourist complex, with Fundación La Tortuga at the main offices of the hydrological area in the Municipal Avenue of Puerto La Cruz. We are going there with the intention of requesting your cooperation and performance to find an adequate environmental response to the problem that we have been facing for several years with the overflow of sewage into the channels of the El Morro Tourist Complex. . Unfortunately, sewage pumping stations are designed to overflow into the canals, given their state and how difficult their maintenance has been, there are constant discharges of pollutants into the canals where thousands of people live. We need a plant to treat sewage!
One of the objectives of La Tortuga Foundation is the development of non-formal education projects. The idea is to bring an environmental message to all possible spaces and at all levels. The evidence of this commitment is highlighted by the realization of educational-training workshops, as well as other activities in the foundation and in the communities. All of these activities are aimed at generating environmental awareness among citizens.
On December 16, 2021, La Tortuga Foundation resumed the activities of Ambientarrrt, carrying out in this case an event to bring an environmental message through artistic expression. In this case, the focus was on the need for conservation of the seas and oceans, especially being inhabitants of the coastal zone.
