Revegetation in Cofete
#1
From Diario:

The Marine Litter Observatory (OBAM) of the Ministry of Environmental Sustainability and the Biosphere Reserve of Fuerteventura developed a revegetation project in the area of Cofete, in the municipality of Pájara. In total, one hundred sweet tabaibas were planted in the tabaibal cardonal of Fuerteventura, in an action carried out together with the Association of Volunteers of Help to Nature of Fuerteventura (Avanfuer), the local brand Biosphere Reserve of Fuerteventura, Rural Quality and Ecotourism, as well as RedPromar of the Government of the Canary Islands.

The activity was part of the I International Festival of Ecoexperiences, organized by Beforplanet.org and Ecowildlife Travel, contributing to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions (carbon footprint) produced by the festival. This footprint has been assessed taking into account values such as energy consumption, transport use or accommodation. During the meeting, sustainable initiatives such as those developed by THE OBAM or Avanfuer were also announced.
In addition, the OBAM and RedPromar participated in the Bioblitz held at the Islote de Lobos, an event in which citizen science became especially important and which consisted of identifying, cataloguing and photographing the different species that inhabit the Islet. Using the RedPromar app, participants were divided into two groups, identifying a total of 63 species.
OBAM is a project of the Fuerteventura Biosphere Reserve, in collaboration with the MITECO Biodiversity Foundation and co-financed by the PLEAMAR program of the European Maritime-Fisheries Fund. For its part, RedPromar is a project co-financed with the European Regional Development Fund ERDF.
