So MCTV is a platform that seeks to do well and good things.
Our environment is being degraded here, regionally and internationally.
It is never too late for a shower of rain so please note this MCTV endorsed effort. Please join with C-CAM as they do what they can to save what we have left of our beautiful God given environment.
The Caribbean Coastal Area Management (C-CAM) Foundation is an environmental Non-Government organization, that has its office in Lionel Town, Clarendon Jamaica… for over 10 years and has been working ardently; in the Portland Bight Protected Area (PBPA) as well as the South Clarendon and South St. Catherine areas of Jamaica.
C-CAM has been actively involved in many aspects of the community, the areas include: mangrove replanting, expos and educational ventures, and projects that involve various stakeholders, conservation projects and climate change awareness programmes.
C-CAM is currently in the process of developing a new management plan for the PBPA, that has an integrated management approach …incorporating vested stakeholders in the process.
As the environmental organization in the area, C-CAM is trying to increase its efforts to include the immediate community of Lionel Town, in its environmental awareness plans - to get more persons involved in taking care of the community.
For Earth Day 2013, and the 14th anniversary of the Portland Bight, C-CAM is embarking upon a development and beautification project for the Lionel Town Community Park.
C-CAM is seeking assistance from corporate partners that have worked with the group over the years, as well as seeking new support from any new interested partners; to enact an overall greening and infrastructural development for the park over time.
C-CAM’s first step will be to host the first Earth Day Beautification “Save the Trees” activity - on Saturday April 20, 2012 beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Volunteers and community persons are being invited to join with the C-CAM team to clean the park as well as participate in tree planting activities along the perimeter fence that skirts the park.
MCTV asks you to get involved in the noble endeavor!
