To recover faster, the forest needs help. But workers and landscapers.
How does it work? Dogs in special backpacks, hanging on the sides, poured seeds.
is poured, we fix. Dogs do not mind.
And then just let the dogs run around in the woods.
When they run in an arbitrary direction of the bags poured seeds. It's simple.
The hope is that as soon as the seedlings, grass and flowers spring up, come back insects reptiles, birds and mammals, who fled from the fire.
A new piece of the seed in the bag - the new walk.
You can see how when running out of bags poured seeds.
These are the frisky four-legged landscapers workers are now working in Chile.
