The training for medium and higher training courses in the forestry sector comes to the provinces of Huelva and Almeria

Life Conhabit Andalusia, the project for the conservation of habitats on the Andalusian coast coordinated by the Environment and Town and Country Planning Department, launched the training for the forestry sector today in Huelva and Almeria which it has planned to carry out across Andalusia.

In the case of Huelva, the forestry sector training has come to San José High School, in the municipality of Cortegana, in the middle of Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche; while in the province of Almeria it was at Sierra de Gádor High School in the town of Berja. In both cases, theoretical workshop paths have been offered to students who are studying a medium training course.

In the case of San José High School in Cortegana, the training will be carried out in the classroom where it will be conveyed to the students the uniqueness of the Huelva spaces that are part of the project, the priority habitats to protect in each of them as well as the patterns that guarantee conservation of these at the time of executing the forest operations.
The Doñana High School, in Almonte, will be the next school in Huelva to receive this training planned for next Tuesday. It will be for students on higher training courses in the forestry sector, who will complete it on Wednesday 22, with practical training in the path of Ribetehilos, located in the Doñana Natura 2000 Network space.
In the province of Almeria, Life Conhabit as has planned to offer this training to two more schools. This will be at the Sierra Nevada and José Marín schools; the first in Fiñana, for their students on medium training courses and the second in Vélez Rubio, for those who study medium and higher training courses in the forestry sector.

Across Andalusia, this training initiative will benefit 400 students in 16 schools, most of them high schools, across the 5 provinces of the Andalusian coast.
Workshops divided into a theoretical and a practical part. For the latter, the project has planned field trips where possible. The idea is that the participating students visit one of the Natura 2000 Network spaces in their province to reinforce what they have learned and to see and check first hand the different actions to carry out, bearing in mind its peculiarities and main habitats and species to protect.
Life Conhabit has made a different space available in each province to carry out this training. Thus, to those already mentioned in Huelva (the Ribetehilos in Doñana) and in Almeria (Ramblas del Gérgal, Tabernas and Sur de Sierra Alhamilla), for the schools in Cadiz, the SAC de La Breña y Marismas del Barbate has been selected; and finally, the Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo for the schools in Malaga and Granada.
