Jungle Trails

A good example of how ecological conservation is consistent with the development of the project can be seen when building the trails.
The island had always been uninhabited so there was lot of dry branches and tree trunks preventing the growth of new plants.
With a mentality of 50 years ago, anybody would have proceeded to collect the dry wood and burn it in big mountains with subsequent contribution to global warming and the disappearance of a lot of organic matter.
We have instead used that huge amount of vegetable matter as a support base for the trails throughout the island. These logs do not rot easily and create a network of trails below, allowing the flow of rain water, insects and other animals like the famous fiddler crabs.
