Cuba begins conservation program in Varadero
Beaches, hotels, unspoiled ecological environments and overflowing wildlife are the features that define the resort of Varadero that, along with dolphin and other attractions, is the largest tourist destination in Cuba.
Therefore, Cuban authorities began implementing an ambitious program of conservation and protection of this large area located 140 kilometers east of Havana, according to the Centre for Environmental Services of Matanzas.
Oscar Garcia, director of the entity told local media that the plan is designed to preserve the natural attributes of the place and it consists of six lines of work that will slow the effects of climate change and human action.
The project includes erosion control and reforestation of the dune with vegetation, typical species of coastal ecosystem and also water quality, as the resort hosts more than 36,000 people a day, which generates a considerable amount of waste.
