Fauna rescue and relocation plan for the Ciudad Hospitalaria project in Panama
Description of social and environmental performance.
The construction of Ciudad Hospitalaria in Panama, carried out by FCC Construcción, is located in an area deemed as a mature secondary forest due to the vast biodiversity of animal species and vegetation that surrounds it.
Faced with this situation, a specific study of the fauna found in the immediate works area was conducted before work commenced. Based on the data obtained from said study, an animal Rescue and Relocation Plan was produced, which included the measures required to conserve the environment.
Thanks to the constant supervision of the facilities and the training and involvement of our staff, around 18 different species have been rescued and relocated. After finding the animals, they are assessed and transferred to the Camino de Cruces National Park, where they are released into a risk-free environment.
