For that reason, and according to a publication of the Cadena Agramonte website, ‘with the aim of ensuring the surveillance and care of plants and animals, contribute to environmental education and sustainable management of natural resources, the Provincial Enterprise of Flora and Fauna in Camagüey is currently managing 64 projects’.
Meanwhile, the delegation of the Ministry of Tourism in the territory has in a joint work with its counterpart of Science, Technology and Environment a scheme of actions for the use of endogenous resources.
The director of Conservation and Tourism assured that ‘the entity administers 15 protected areas and works together with the National Forestry Development Fund’.
Likewise, in Cuba’s largest province, forestry activity and its protection is currently close to 500,000 hectares, an area with almost 80 percent covered by forests.
According to data recently offered by the State Forestry Service in the Provincial Delegation of Agriculture, several actions related to the conservation of the forest heritage are implemented by organizations and institutions based on the need to strengthen the sustainable management of existing natural resources and the protection of biodiversity.
The management of natural resources as part of the government’s sustainable development agenda is an absolute priority for science in the province of Camagüey.
Cuba’s largest province, which hosts more than 20 percent of Cuba’s beaches, has natural strongholds such as the protected areas of the Máximo River, the Sábana-Camagüey Archipelago ecosystem, as well as the Sierra de Cubitas, an area visited by hiking enthusiasts.
