Today, Malaga joins the training that the project offers to those on the medium and higher training courses in the forestry sector

Life Conhabit Andalusia, the project for the conservation of habitats on the Andalusian coast coordinated by the Environment and Town and Country Planning Department, has taken the training for the forestry sector to Málaga today that it has planned to carry out across Andalusia.
It will be a school in Malaga that will host the first theoretical workshop today: The Andrés Pérez Serrano High School in Cortes de la Frontera, for their students on the medium training course. The next school planned will be the Número 1 Secondary School of the Laboral University in the capital, for those who study the higher training course there.
The goal of this training activity is to achieve that the students learn to integrate conservation into forest uses that they carry out in the Natura 2000 Network spaces. An initiative that Life Conhabit supplements with a practical workshop, when possible.
In the case of Andrés Pérez Serrano High School, this training will be in the classroom whilst for Número 1 Secondary School of the Laboral University in Malaga a field trip has been planned to the Natura 2000 Network space Acantilados Maro-Cerro. The objective is identical for both schools: that the students learn the unique aspects of this magnificent space that they share with the province of Granada, as well as the priority habitats that it contains that need to be protected, with the idea that they learn the patterns that guarantee conservation when executing forest operations.
Across Andalusia, this training initiative will benefit 400 students from 16 schools, mostly high schools, across the 5 provinces of the Andalusian coast.
Life Conhabit has made a different space available in each province to carry out this training. Thus, as well as the space Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo already mentioned for Málaga and Granada; for the schools in Huelva, the Ribetehilos path has been selected in Doñana; in Cadiz the SAC de La Breña y Marismas del Barbate and in Almeria, the Ramblas del Gérgal, Tabernas y Sur de Sierra Alhamilla natural space.
