Up to 400 students from all over Andalusia will benefit from the training that Life Conhabit Andalusia will give to those on medium and higher training courses in the forestry sector. An initiative that is based on conservation, since its main aim is to teach participating students to integrated themselves in the actions of forestry use.

16 schools, most of them high schools, spread over the five provinces of the Andalusian coast, will host these workshops that have a theoretical part and a practical part. For the carrying out of these workshops, the project has planned that the students participating in the training visit one of the Natura 2000 Network spaces in their province with the idea that they see and check first hand the different actions to carry out, bearing in mind its peculiarities and main habitats and species to preserve.

The Ribetehilos path in Doñana will focus the training of the medium and higher training courses in the forestry sector in Huelva and, to this end, it was the last Natura 2000 Network space that the Life Conhabit Andalusia technical experts visited this week to prepare it. A field trip in which the Life Conhabit Andalucía regional director in Western Huelva, Isabel Redondo Morales, and the Conservation Technical Expert of the Doñana Natural Space, María Dolores Cobo García also participated.

In the rest of the provinces subject to the project, the Natura 2000 Network spaces chosen for the carrying out of this training are: Ramblas del Gérgal, Tabernas y Sur de Sierra Alhamilla (Almeria), La Breña y Marismas del Barbate (Cadiz) and Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo (Malaga-Granada).
