HARVESTING SEEDS AND FRUITS IN THE DUNE ENVIRONMENT
12th January 2021 – DUNE AREA LA ADELFA, Bahía de Marbella and EL ALICATE
Re-introduction of the Sea Daffodil (Pancratium maritimum)
Recollection of the fruits of the large-fruited Juniper (Juniperus macrocarpa)
and Dune conservation El Alicate
The collection of seeds and fruits as also dune conservation work continues
During the coming months between January and May, every week we will be in a different dune environment, collecting seeds or fruits of native flora that will be sent to Cantueso Natural Seeds in Córdoba. This company will give the seeds the appropriate conditioning treatment.
Over the next weeks we will disseminate these seeds or fruits again in dune areas that are still degraded. This is how, we will contribute and reinstate a new and interesting biodiversity.
Co-workers of Fundatul and volunteers will also learn how to carry out good dune conservation, manually removing different kind of invasive alien species so that these do not flourish and displace the native dune vegetation.
