Children’s Forest Program (CFP) in Mexico
Expanding seedling raising activity for the protection of the historical environment
Presently, Children’s Forest Program (CFP) has been carried out in 36 countries and areas of the world. In Mexico’s Tehuacan-Cuicatlan Valley area, children are tackling CFP activities to protect the historical environment.
In this area said to be the birthplace of Mesoamerica civilization, the valuable ecosystem of the North American semi-arid zone including various species of cacti is preserved and the area was designated as the World Heritage by UNESCO in 2018.
