Baracoa, Cuba.- Seven months after the course of Hurricane Matthew by the east of Cuba, the Humboldt National Park (PNAH) is recovering its natural charm and welcomes those who are now visiting it.

 

The biggest affectations were reported in Baracoa, the green woods, the pine trees and the ecosystem suffered, because of the bringing down of several trees and the loss of the cultivations, which altered the habitat of some species.

Yovanny Olivero, a PNAH specialist, said the strategies implemented and the natural characteristics of Baracoa made the slow recovery possible, since two months later, all the paths and tourist routes were already working.

Chopping of trees and extraction of usable wood, prunings of formation, preparation of areas to favor the natural regeneration of indigenous vegetable species and the monitoring of the fauna are some of these immediate actions.

"In this moment, we can make sure that there is a recovery and that the strategy conceived for the rescue of the region is bearing its fruits, several years will be on until the environment is completely recovered and looks like it was before, but nature is wise, and she will do her own job, too," he stated.

The group of experts is provided with the support of organizations like the Department of Sciences, Technology and Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture and others, as well as with the collaboration of non-governmental organizations, said the specialist.
