As we updated a few weeks ago, our work continues in drought-stricken areas of Chihuahua. Livestock in the region continue to struggle for survival.
Alongside our local colleagues, we held a second community meeting with key stakeholders, government officials and farmers where we laid the groundwork for the next phase of our intervention. We also distributed a further 100 mineral blocks to meet immediate needs of the most vulnerable animals.
A video sent to us by our colleagues in the WSPA Latin America office tells the story and the impact of our support.
The next stage of our will be implemented over the coming weeks. We will build two medium dam-like retention ponds to improve water management, rehabilitate large portions of pastureland and help replenish underground aquifers.
Six communities across the region will benefit from the dam construction and the resulting improved pastures. We anticipate our work will directly benefit 220 families and 2500 animals in the region.
Please continue to check back for more updates as we continue our work on the ground in northern Mexico.
