Cuidar vs Cuidar a

“Debemos cuidar a nuestro medio ambiente.”

Esta frase es incorrecta, ¿no?
Tiene que ser: “…cuidar nuestro ambiente”, ¿verdad?

Many thanks.

Últimamente se "humaniza" todo ser vivo y toda causa ("cuidar al medio ambiente" da la idea de cuidarlo como si fuera una persona), pero tienes razón: la preposición sale sobrando.
