More shameful expansion as PANAMA environment is prostituted yet again. Camino de Cruces threatened

Agriculture

The Camino de Cruces National Park, in the village of Ancón, has more than 4 thousand hectares of primary forests, which over time have been disappearing to make way for construction projects not only private, but also state.

Its creation dates back to 1992 and constitutes one of the basic pillars for the functioning and conservation of the Canal watershed, which is even more worrisome to ecologists and community activists in the area.

Just a tour is enough and take some images to realize that there are currently a series of problems and shortcomings, which generate alterations or direct and indirect threats to the natural and cultural resources of the protected area.

In this area, in addition to valuable forests, there are old stone paths that date back to colonial times.

Right now, one of the main deficiencies for the management of the park is that it requires regulations to manage the natural and cultural resources that must be conserved and protected there, since its management plan expired in 2010.

This, in some way, has allowed the construction of projects on the site, such as the City of Health of the Social Security Fund, the third transmission line of the Transmisión Eléctrica, SA (Etesa) or Merca Panama, of the state company National Markets of the Cold Chain.

Meanwhile, in the private sector you can see some quarries, landfills or real estate projects inside or in the buffer zone of the reserve.
