Protection and rescue of fauna and flora

During the implementation of the activities of the Jala–Puerto Vallarta highway in Mexico, involving stripping and land clearing, a series of animal and plant species have been identified with different forms of protection. These activities generate noise and disorders to water and soil, causing mobilisation of native wildlife in the area.

ACCIONA Construcción, committed to the conservation of flora and fauna, and in compliance with the legislation on environmental impact, has identified the species in order to perform the rescue and the corresponding protection.

As examples, rescues have been made of the false coral snake (Lampropeltis triangulum), species without venom or fangs which it is completely harmless to man. It is listed under the category of ENDANGERED SPECIES due, among other reasons, to the destruction of their habitat and death caused by people who confuse them with the real coral snakes.

Likewise, the black Iguana (Ctenosaura pectinata) has also been rescued This lizard belonging to the Iguanidae family, highly prized for their meat in some regions, such as Oaxaca. This demand and the destruction of its habitat has led this species to be placed in the ENDANGERED SPECIES category since their populations have reduced considerably.

The rescue of flora species is focused to those that are under a protection status, species of difficult propagation or slow growth, or that are of importance from a commercial or cultural point of view. Some of the recovered plants are taken to a temporary nursery so that they can be adapted and cared for in order to be later used in various reforestation projects. Other plants were relocated within areas near to the extraction site, with the same features.
