The project, in the 2017 Doñana Environmental Volunteering Meeting, needs surgeons for their volunteer training

Life Conhabit Andalusia has also participated in the 2017 Doñana Environmental Volunteering workshops held this weekend in this natural space.

The meeting that intended to establish some basic lines for the action of volunteering in the recovery of the area that suffered the fire in Las Peñuelas, and that the Regional Ministry of the Environment has organised with the Doñana Natural Space.
A fire that affected several Natura 2000 Network spaces subject to Life Conhabit, and also to Doñana, are: Doñana Norte y Oeste, Dehesa del Estero y Montes de Moguer and Laguna de Palos y Las Madres.

Life Conhabit’s interest, as well as coming by to check the state of one of the spaces that they look after, was to gather information and lines of action to be able to put in motion their own volunteering training.

As the organisers informed us, this meeting united 60 people in Doñana; specifically, in the Nature of Matalascañas Room in Almonte (Huelva), and it ended with the design of a work plan for the voluntary action in the Las Peñuelas fire.
To this end, they debated and explained from the actions carried in the area after the fire to the projects in development, passing by several talks on experiences about volunteering.

Also in working groups, they debated and decided the possibilities of voluntary action in the area around three core areas: communication and environmental awareness, monitoring of fauna and flora and, lastly, restoration actions.

The meeting ended on Sunday with a trip through the area to check the effects of the fire.
