In the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Biosphere Reserve momentum has been given to the construction of burrows and hollows they do on land, with the aim of generating the right conditions for some animals to return to these places they previously inhabited.
The director of that protected natural area, Fernando Reyes Flores, reported that these works are intended to generate adequate conditions so that the animals, when they settle in those places, in their walk when moving from one place to another, help to disperse on this surface, tree and plant seeds and thus increase the reproduction of these and in that way they do not put themselves at risk of disappearing.
The perches that they make allow various birds and mammals that are in that area help spread the seeds that also serve for their food, which when located, they are transferred from one point to another and on that journey there are many that fall and that allows the reproduction of them so that there is a greater diversity.
All this work they do, pointed out that it helps the ecological restoration and to recover degraded areas, which are often affected by the clearing by people, who make the change of land use with clearing and by removing native vegetation to incorporate these surfaces into agriculture or for urban growth, all this pays to the fact that the vegetation cover has been lost in the last 50 years, in addition to the presence of animals that had their habitat there.
That is why when making a review, they found that one way to recover the vegetation, is by attracting animals who contribute significantly to the recovery of plants and trees.
Sometimes he said, “we leave with the idea that planting a tree is necessary everywhere, but it is not necessarily true, because there are trees that are not distributed in any territory, there are places where they cause a negative impact, because there are species that need a greater amount of water, or that is an invasive species, and so on ”.
Therefore, Reyes Flores indicated that it is recommended that where you intend to do soil recovery work, the environment is first analyzed, programmed and do a good planning of the activities that are going to be carried out and not introduce any type of tree or plant in the territory where I do not know how to develop naturally.
