The Council has just adopted a Royal Decree to regulate the feeding of scavenger birds. That will be an important step forward in the conservation of these species and will give a respite to farmers and regional authorities, which will save costs associated with the collection and processing of the carcasses.
The University of Alicante has three scientific stations that develop activities of research, training and scientific dissemination relating to the conservation and study of the natural environment, in the province of Alicante. November 2011.
Our M.Sc. on Management and Restoration of Natural Areas will provide suitable preparation on the natural heritage, correcting measures to attain the best ecosystem state, optimum management of natural resources, and available biotechnological tools to bring the best solutions to current and future environmental problems.
This M.Sc. will provide the means:
- To design, carry out and pilot restoration projects.
- To manage protected areas.
- To develop sound research on ecosystem conservation and restoration.
The M.Sc is imparted by well recognized experts with strong links to public and private sectors in Spain and worldwide.
This monograph contributes to the line 3.3 "Financial innovative mechanisms for the management" of the Program of Work for the areas protected 2009-2013 impulsado by EUROPARC-Spain. It contributes a reflection on the possibilities of application of financial instruments for the conservation of the natural heritage in Spain, including numerous examples of application in other regions of the world.
In this video Pep Cantó observes how has incrementado the current size of the population of mouflon (Ovis musimon) in the Natural Park of the Carrascal of the Font Roja. The mouflon was introduced in the Natural Park for hunting, although it has not been included in the catalogue of exotic species invasoras of the Valencian Community, as it has been the case of the Barbary sheep. Its population kept during a time in 8 individuals. Currently this species has suffered an increase of populational size. The projects to introduce other species like the wild goat and other ungulates have to consider these questions: It would be convenient the realisation of previous studies on the dynamics of the ungulate populations in the Natural Park.
