INTERCONTINENTAL BIOSPHERE RESERVE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN
Reforestation of burned lands and protection of biodiversity in the Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean, protected by the UNESCO.
The Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve of the Mediterranean is one of the most important biosphere reserves in the world, fully protected by the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO).
The Marbella area of the Biosphere Reserve—province of Malaga—suffered a major wildfire in 2012. The soil has difficulty recovering, animal life is still disturbed. It is difficult to walk through the area without feeling deep sadness at the sight of the missing life. The work involves the reforestation of 1,070 hectares with 1,035,000 trees and helping natural regeneration.
