We are in love with nature, find out what Cap Cana does towards Earth’s preservation.
WILDLIFE HABITAT PROTECTION
Construction was restricted in areas to minimize wildlife disruption and protect important species such as the “Ighuana Ricordi”, the red neb ducks, and birds that you will enjoy seeing while driving around Cap Cana.
Ridgway’s Hawk Conservation
Ridgway’s Hawks are critically endangered with only 300 individuals left in the world. The Ridgway Hawk population in the Punta Cana region has preferred to nest within Cap Cana’s grounds, which Cap Cana working side by side with the Peregrine Fund has successfully helped hatch four nestlings to date.
In that same sense, Cap Cana has applied training efforts among landscaping contractors on the proper prune of palm trees to conserve the nesting of the Ridway’s Hawk.
Recently, the Peregrine Fund’s biologists have discovered that electrocution is another of the Ridway’s Hawk threats. The Peregrine Fund has addressed electrocution by providing insulation and other protective coverings to the Cap Cana Caribe power company and assisting in installation of them on power poles to protect the hawks.
Honey Bee Conservancy
Bees are responsible for pollinating many of our key fruit and vegetable crops. In fact, without their help over one third of our crop supply could be in danger of disappearing. Cap Cana has addressed the conservancy of the honey bee by working in conjunction with local apiarist relocating honey bee colonies within the Cap Cana ground to the apiary located in the backyard of the Cap Cana Information and Sales Center.
Catch and Release for Marine Life Preservation
Marina Cap Cana is part of the Billfsihsh Foundation, which its main policy is that billfish fishing is only “catch and release” and part of the collected funds in fishing tournaments is donated to this foundation. Anglers are drawn to follow the marine green rules that have been made to preserve coral reefs and marine wildlife.
Instead of cutting down trees that have taken decades to mature, trees are transplanted for use as landscape in other areas. Trees that could not be saved re-emerged as items ranging from benches and trellises, posts in covered walkways, to wooden carvings in the resort.
As part of the activities promoted by Scape Park the enjoy a guided nature walk to Hoyo Azul and Iguabonita cave tourist while learning about the appreciation and conservation of natural flora and fauna.
AIR AND WATER QUALITY
Contractors are required to meet with the design review board and private security staff, prior to construction, for approval on the required standards.
Cap Cana has always been concerned with air quality power generation system has a minimum emission of CO2, the Wärtsilä has specifically addressed the issue of noise protection using technical means and has succeeded in lowering noise levels considerably, and however, Cap Cana is regularly monitoring noise.
