Actions taken to promote environmental or social sustainability
EcoFiwi is a company born out of love for nature and the environment and that is why from the beginning, we have been determined to protect, preserve and restore our mangroves, while offering an activity where you can enjoy and learn from these wonderful ecosystems.
ACTIVITIES IN FAVOR OF THE MANGROVES AT THE OLD POINT REGIONAL PARK:
• Constant Vigilance. Every tour with visitors transforms itself in a patrol trip to maintain presence with the aim to avoid environmental crimes. When we witness environmental crimes, we make sure to notify the competent authorities.
• Cleaning campaigns. With the support of the national army, government, environmental police, tourist police and educational institutions we have undertaken various cleanups in the mangroves. On each tour, visitors are encouraged to retrieve any object from the sea, especially plastic; this action in order to raise awareness. The plastics recovered from our cleanup campaigns and tours are sent to ECOBLOQUES, a company that grinds and converts these elements into blocks for building houses.
• Snacks offered to visitors are prepared with local sea and island food purchased from local artisanal fishermen and farmers in the area. We sell only local island products. Our guide is a bilingual islander who, in turn, is an artisanal fisherman.
DURING THE TOUR:
• We provide a "briefing" to our visitors about the required behavior when visiting a protected area to minimize possible negative impacts. Visitors are taught what constitutes a mangrove swamp and their environmental importance. Technical and ancestral information is also provided. We make sure that our visitors do not step on seagrass, manipulate marine life and remove sea shells or other natural elements from these ecosystems.
