Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: Most endemic plants endangered in Fogo, Brava islands




Praia, May 14, 2019 (Lusa) – The vast majority of endemic plants in Cabo Verde islands of Fogo and Brava are endangered and targeted by a conservation project of the environmental organisation Project Vitó that aims to defend this “source of biodiversity.”
Fennel, Scadoxus (some species are called ‘blood lily’), Talinum paniculatum (also known as ‘fame flower’), Artemisia vulgaris (‘mugwort’) are some of the endemic plants that are still in Fogo Natural Park and that, among other, were monitored under this initiative of the Project Vitó, a non-governmental organisation of protection of marine resources and endemic plants in Cabo Verde.
Herculano Dinis, from the project’s board, told Lusa that within two years the population should know much better the native flora and, in the case of the Brava island, have the first protected area, since it is the only island in Cabo Verde without this classification.
There are dozens of species to be studied in this investigation.
According to Dinis, there are 92 endemic species in Cabo Verde, of which 63% are threatened. On the island of Fogo, of the 42 endemic species, 37 are threatened and, on Brava, 16 out of the 19 endemic species are at risk.
There are also some plants that only exist in these islands: six in Fogo and one in Brava, and these are the ones most endangered and will, therefore, be the priority.
Faced with these risks, the project proposed to “follow up all threatened and catalogued as critically threatened,” initially only on these two islands.
For that, a technical training reinforcement is to be promoted to better prepare the professionals involved.
In this context, actions of “awareness, information and dissemination” of the communities are to be carried out, namely in the Fogo Natural Park, institutions and schools.
While the project is underway, plants will be produced in greenhouses and then put in the soil to recover these plants in areas where they once existed.
