VIVE19.06 Rescuing the Lake of Apuizaquito Laguna de Apizaquito 07/08/2019 / 20/08/2019 ENV/SOCI + 18

About the project

The state of Tlaxcala is a hidden gem located just two hours car-ride from Mexico City and thirty minutes from Puebla. The workcamp will be organized by the Youth Institute of the Municipality of Apizaco. Around the town, the lagoon of Apizaquito can be found. This lake is particularly important because certain species of migrant animals lodge there. It is also the home of endemic species of fish. Unfortunately, due to climate change, certain types of plants such as the “tule” plant grow rapidly and damage the nature of the lake. In order to fight this problem, the municipality, other associations and the foreign volunteers will engage in the rescue of this water body.


Project activities

The volunteers will be taking part in the efforts to clean the lake. The activities will be reforestation, preservation of flora and fauna, raising awareness of the community regarding the situation.
