Forest restoration effort in the Vaca Forest Reserve well underway.


🍃FCD’s Extension Technician is actively involved on a forest restoration effort in the Vaca Forest Reserve. The implementation of live fencing to recover denuded areas, improving wildlife habitat and instituting natural corridors are expected outputs. There are several areas in the reserve that are completely denuded as a result of the recent forest fires, therefore much effort is needed. The Forest Department, 2022-2030 National Landscape Restoration Strategy for Belize identifies the Vaca as a priority area for restoration. 🌿
