With the presence of representatives of the departmental government, Acodal, leaders of Coralina and the tourist providers of the park, last Saturday, November 9, the blue flag was hoisted for the first time in Colombia on the beaches of Johnny Cay Regional Park.
This recognition is made for the first time in a protected area, in which the care and protection of this ecosystem is awarded, through recreational and educational activities that invite visitors to enjoy the park responsibly.
The commitment to carry a Blue Flag elevates the category of Johnny Cay Regional Park beaches and allows us to work more hand in hand with tourism providers and improve the provision of services.
During the ceremony the director of the corporation Durcey Stephens Lever said “This achievement is not only of Coralina, but of all the tourist service providers of the cay; the results are being seen today, product of a qualification of different national and international juries that have based their criteria on the fulfillment of the 33 criteria.”
For the Corporation, the conservation of the park's green areas is important, for this purpose the reforestation of four (4) Suriana Maritima or Lavinda trees that allow the maintaining of beaches and the preventing of coastal erosion was done, through the contract celebrated with the company Sofia also responsible for eradicating the Chinese grass of the park; an invasive species.
At the same time, the digital talker was inaugurated, where visitors can learn about details of the park and the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve, as a mechanism to diversify environmental education in a better way.
