Fourteen schools in Puerrto Rico received the "green flag" yesterday from the Organization for a sustainable environment (OPAS in Spanish) for their work on envionmental issues in their school and their communities. The "Eco-School" program is in its 5th year and during 2011-2012 more than 6,500 students and 550 teachers were impacted through the efforts in various schools throughout the island.
The Puerto Rican lizard, "Anolis cristatellus", has two populations, one living in dry forests (Guánica, Aguirre, Boquerón and Ceiba) and one living in humid forests (Guajataca, Cambalache, La Vega and Mata de Plátano). Those living in dry forests are reaching their maximum temperature and could be a victim of climate change.
En nuestro patio hemos tenido que disminuir la siembra de hortalizas , plantas ornamentales y frutales debido a que las iguanas,especialmente las pequeñas, se comen las flores de los frutos. Este año el árbol de mangó no produjo !ninguno!! Igual ha pasado con las guanábanas y limones. Más me extranó que se comieran las matas de "ibiscus".
