São Filipe, Sep 9 (Inforpress) – The Mayor of the Mosteiros, Fábio Vieira, was concerned about what he called “environmental degradation” of the Baleia area, on the Southern border with the municipality of Santa Catarina do Fogo.
It is for this reason the City Hall of Mosteiros included in the President of the Republic visit program, Jorge Carlos Fonseca, a trip to the Baleia area for the Head of State to check it out, on the ground, and thus be able to exercise his influence with the Government, in order to find a solution.
For Fábio Vieira, the Baleia’s situation demonstrates that there is “environmental degradation” with the exploitation in a traditional way and especially with semi-industrial exploitation.
According to him, the concession of the exploitation to a private was for a period of one year, but it has been three years and “deforestation is visible” of a forest area at this time.
The President of the Republic visit serves to check what it will be possible to do, in conjunction with the Government, in order to halt the advanced state of environmental degradation in that area.
