ENDEMIC PLANT CORNER
Mauritius Holidays Direct and Coquille Bonheur inauguration ceremony of its sustainable tree planting scheme in Mauritius took place on Wednesday 12th June at Pelican Avenue, Camp Creoles Mauritius.
This is the first time a UK tour operator in collaboration with a Mauritian DMC have made a major investment in a Mauritius tree planting programme and marks the firm’s genuine commitment to customers wanting to sustainably offset their carbon footprint. Holiday makers can choose to visit the park and help plant their trees or just opt for local botanists employed on the project to plant trees on their behalf.
Based in Pelican Avenue, Camp Creoles Mauritius, the restoration of Albion Leisure Park is already under-way and some trees have been planted so that visitors can see what a difference their tree planting support will make. Holiday makers can choose to visit the park and help plant their trees or just opt for local botanists employed on the project to plant trees on their behalf. Endemic trees from sustainably managed local nurseries in the Black River District will be sourced to supply the plantation.
Christian Lefevre said, ‘The project in itself consists of the embellishment of this space and the planting of endemic plants by MHD clients for the Welfare of Albion inhabitants in particular and Mauritius, as a tourist destination, in general, creating environmental protection awareness thus adapt to the negative impacts of climate change by increasing carbon sinks.’
