Both animal, plant and tree species are in serious danger of extinction in our Patagonia . The work of hundreds of people is of crucial importance to maintaining biodiversity as rich as we know it. Environmental NGOs are at the heart of this fight against climate change and the voracity of polluting municipalities and businesses. Friends of Patagonia is among the most active organizations in this defense . For this Christmas , they launched a peculiar campaign.
The Friends of Patagonia Foundation was created in 1999 , in the city of San Martín de los Andes, Province of Neuquén . On their website, they indicate that the idea arose when “ concerned about the environmental legacy they were leaving to their children and grandchildren , a group of friends passionate about Patagonia decided to group formally to contribute to the spread of the problems facing the environment ”. Thus, the AAP was created, from which they are aware of the need to take care of the environment in which we live .
The proposal for this end of the year is “ A Tree for Christmas”, which emerged under the framework of its program “We do Bosque” . From this, they are dedicated to recovering the native species of native trees in National Parks . The idea is that different people throughout the Argentine territory can give to their loved ones, nothing less than a native tree . The slogan “give life to your Christmas tree”, synthesizes one of the main activities of this organization. The other legs of the table that Amigos de la Patagonia make up are environmental education, the sum of volunteers and cleaning coasts.
The special holiday activity, has as its mechanism an original tutoring : The person who donates a minimum of 5US$ through the organization's website, will give away to anyone who wants the native tree in question. Friends of Patagonia will take care of the task of planting it and in this way, help conserve and restore Patagonian forests. Then such a person will become a vigilante of the forest, as he will be able to know by geolocation, in which part of the National Park is his tree .
In 2016, more than 40,000 hectares of Patagonian forest were razed by fires of unclear origin. There began the proesa de los Amigos de la Patagonia: They planted the first 7000 trees and today, they have more than 17,000 planted.
San Martín de los Andes is listed by tourists and locals, as an eco-friendly city . The concern of its neighbors about environmental problems and municipal activities in this order make “Sanma” one of the examples and emblems of nature care in Patagonia. Such is the importance given to these activities, that in the main square of the city, a large Christmas tree is erected composed of recycled material . Basically, bottles and caps are the elements used for this tree that at night has a beautiful Christmas lighting.
