Medina Sidonia welcomed today, Monday 6 November, the putting into action of the training that, on an Andalusian level, Life Conhabit Andalusia will give to students on the medium and higher training courses in the forestry sector. Specifically, it was in the San Juan de Dios High School in the Cadiz town and it consisted of offering the theoretical part in the classroom.
Also in the province of Cadiz, in Jimena de la Frontera and in their Hozgarganta High School, the following training workshop is signalled: next Wednesday, 8 November.
This initiative, which will benefit 400 students from all over Andalusia, as the main aim of conservation, since its main goal is to transmit to the participating students the necessary knowledge for integrating it into the actions of forest use.
16 schools, mostly high schools, spread over the 5 provinces of the Andalusian coastline will host these workshops which have a theoretical part and a practical part. For the carrying out of the latter, the project has planned that the participating students 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 protect.
In the province of Cadiz, the space chosen for carrying out the practical side of this training course will be the SAC La Breña y Marismas del Barbate; in the case of Huelva, it will be Doñana, specifically, the area of the path of Ribetehilos; in Almería, it is planned in Ramblas del Gérgal, Tabernas and Sur de Sierra Alhamilla and, finally, in Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo for the schools in Malaga and Granada.
