About the local hosting organization

 The San Luis estate is a center of Environmental Education with a strategic location, in the “Mundo Maya Tourist Corridor”, adjacent to some Archaeological areas. Yucatan has lost 80% of the original vegetation cover and associated fauna and flora in the last decades.

 Given this context, this project is created to be a space to address the problem of ecological deterioration based on comprehensive educational programs with emphasis on science, technology and productivity, forging a lifestyle in which a rationality prevail on the one hand, an environmental orientation guided by ethical and moral principles and, on the other hand, a social rationality that makes possible the satisfaction of the present human needs with attachment to the sustainable management of the natural resources.

About the volunteer work

Volunteers will be involved in the different areas of the farm, such as organic agriculture (cleaning of the site, incorporation of compost, collection of materials, stones, dried tree trunks, disused containers, pots, seeds, plants, installation of rustic irrigation);

 Conservation and maintenance of the site (construction of breccias against fires and trails for bird watching). Gaps of 1.20 m wide will be opened with the double purpose of avoiding in the event of a fire that is spread and can be controlled, besides it will also serve for the observation of birds and fauna and environmental research (labeling of plants and trees, monitoring of fauna and flora taking photographic samples for research purposes, taking biological samples for their classification. Investigate possible cave that has been found ancient remains, rest of vessels etc.)
