DUNE CONSERVATION

23rd February 2021 – DUNE AREAS EL ARENAL AND EL BARRONAL DE LA MORENA, El Rosario-Elviria
Cleaning up of the dune El Arenal and Dune conservation of the dune El Barronal

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.
