5:50 am
travel to mexico outside the town of. an old aztec planting technique is helping prevent flooding along the coastline. because here i think i see myself as an aztec that way if not i carry the roots of my culture within me. i've worked in farming since i was a boy my grandparents once grew vegetables such as letters on this land today the work is done by my father my brother and me. this paddling to his part of a sustainable farming system established by his aztec forefathers 500 years ago champus are artificial islands made from modern reeds and separated by come out there to pick li 300 meters long and 15 meters wide to this day farming is done by hand with no help from tractors or plows that most of buckets to take the water and
5:51 am
the mud that we need straight from the canals and we transport it all in our boats . after drying out the mud we plant the seeds in the resulting soil it's a technique used centuries ago by our ancestors the aztecs and it's very efficient . if you see in this. style harvests the produce from his chin on per up to 5 times a year he sells the vegetables to restaurants in downtown mexico city. the historic center is just 20 kilometers away. the chain on post a one of the last remaining i way seas in the sprawling mega-city. 500 kilometers away on the coast of the gulf of mexico floor on this cruise is hoping 2 numbers will make her life easier. it will be empty again she catches fish and craps for a living but today's catch is modest she set up 20 traps which vince not just ate
5:52 am
craps. at the sea every other than there used to be a lot more crabs here at this time of year there already be really big ones but there was nothing today normally we'd have more crabs on the current comes but that's not the case we're really noticing the change. for the craps finding refuge along the coast is becoming increasingly difficult due to deforestation mangroves have suffered especially heavy losses and have been depleted by over 30 percent over the past 40 years. that means the disappearance of a crucial protective habitats for local animals. these people are determined to revive those havens in a regional mine very planting scheme nobody here is bothered about getting their fingers dirty. it's
5:53 am
actually kind of fun. you know. the men are building champus just as the aztecs did 500 years ago the little islands of athenry will provide homes for the mine grapes to thrive in that we've got enough to put it on the market but we're using the technique because the land is so deep in the water the plant wouldn't grow without the support of that you know it would be blown over by the 1st gust of wind. and. among grave reforestation scheme it's organized by city . team from the pro nutter a conservation group. they initially had difficulty reintroducing mangroves in the coastal regions. they wouldn't grow because the water level was too high. and. it's surprising to see their celgene ampad technique from central mexico one
5:54 am
that's being used here on the gulf to help replenish mangere. and it's great to be creating a link to our heritage and also that people from that region are involved in the project. migrates used to be everywhere. but they've now been replaced by post right up to the shore grazed by cattle and the traditional fishing region. if you are honest creosote and her family a pinning their hopes on the conservation group and the champ has. once the mine gray forests have been restored that hole of fish and crabs should grow again as well flo and her husband and son took part in the planting project helping to reestablish the old ecosystem. my moniker i was practically born in the water in the river i never went to school well up at all
5:55 am
a lot of baggage but one of the few things i do know about the world is how important the mangroves are for us and the entire system for all the species for everyone and everything. will be basically built. back in the center of the country the suburbs of the capital have been creeping ever closer to the champ has in recent years a sale and the other farmers are concerned about their fields the biggest danger for this old method of sustainable farming is humankind itself. when the wherever people go they pollute they leave trash everywhere including in the canarsie and benchley they fill up and dry out and you can't row down them anymore the canals become dirty. i mean. must say i would like to see his children take over his
