Environmental Work is Recognized
Dominican Republic, 7/17/2015

A team of three photographers and a marine biologist was recognized for their work in favor of the environment, compliance with environmental laws and agreements.

The photographers specializing in conservation and the environment often found situations or practices in national parks or protected areas that harmed the environment. They did not stay silent, reporting it to the authorities to let them know that they should to act.

In this way the forum was created on Facebook: ECO & 1/2 AMBIENTE-RD in charge of Carlos De Soto Molinari, and moderators Marvin del Cid, Eladio Fernández and biologist Yolanda Leon also joined the photographers.

Since then, the group has been in charge of monitoring anomalies committed against forests, national parks, green areas and all natural or man-made areas that deserve immediate action to protect the flora and fauna of our country. Similarly, members oversee compliance with environmental laws and treaties with the help of over a thousand members that have joined the forum. This work, that started less than a year ago, made them recipient of the award ‘Campaña Solucionista del año' Environment 2015 awards, given by the magazine Revista En Sociedad of the newspaper Hoy.
