Piñero Group’s plant biodiversity initiative revealed at Botanical Bridges 2024 Congress

Colombia.- In collaboration with the Botanical Garden of Santo Domingo, the Piñero Group presented the project “Actions to Improve Plant Biodiversity in Playa Nueva Romana in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic” at the Botanical Bridges 2024 Congress in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Launched in 2019, the initiative focuses on restoring and enhancing plant biodiversity in the green areas surrounding the residential project and golf course.

The Piñero Group’s efforts include eradicating invasive species, planting native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, and promoting elements that facilitate natural seed dispersal for spontaneous regeneration. These measures not only contribute to biodiversity recovery but also enhance the environmental quality of the region.

A crucial aspect of the project involves pest and disease control in flora, along with an ecological plant nutrition system based on natural extracts. The group also implements alternative ecological methods for managing plant waste, aiming to retain carbon and naturally enrich the soil.

Pablo del Toro, Head of Environment at Grupo Piñero, expressed enthusiasm about collaborating with the National Botanical Garden and sharing experiences at the Botanical Bridges 2024 Congress. This collaboration exemplifies Piñero Group’s dedication to environmental conservation and sustainable practices, showcasing how local initiatives can align with global consciousness. Through such partnerships, bridges are established to preserve biodiversity and foster a lasting commitment to a sustainable environment.

The Botanical Bridges Congress 2024 aims to encourage collaboration among botanical gardens, enthusiasts, and research centers in the Caribbean and Central America. These regions host unique species but face threats like habitat loss, invasive species, and climate change impact. The congress emphasizes the importance of knowledge and resource exchange as crucial for developing joint conservation strategies, highlighting collaboration between botanical gardens, research institutions, and local communities as essential pillars to address current threats.
