Every year we carry out a reforestation project during one day at the airport plateau. Three of the dry ecosystem native species are planted: “algarrobo” or “faique” (Acacia macracantha), “guarango” (Tara espinosa) and “cholan” (Tecoma stans).

 

Relevant data:

  • 2500 persons participated in reforestation. 
  • We have planted 1583 live trees of native species.

Curious facts:

  • This is a joint work with the Environment Secretariat from the Metropolitan District of Quito.
  • Companies such as Avianca, Toyota, Corporacion Quiport, Colegio SEK and schools from areas surrounding the airport have participated in the program.
