A patch of green in cementville
The EcoFans Juniors trekked over the southern part of Lycabettus hill and discovered various types of trees, shrubs, cacti, and grass.
The Lycabettus hill is one of the few green lungs of Athens. Using a specially created questionnaire, the EcoFans Juniors trekked over the southern part of the hill and discovered various types of trees, shrubs, cacti, and grass. Our environmentalists found the hill to be very poor in biodiversity and unable to support many varieties of birds, small mammals, or reptiles. Diminishing biodiversity threatens Lycabettus since a disease might kill all pine tress and leave this historic hill bear. Limited biodiversity also means limited food source for the animals there. The EcoFans decided to help the ailing Lycabettus by collecting seeds from the fruits they eat at home and, whenever they visit the hill, to disperse them there. After all, Nature knows best what when a plant shall grow!
