Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


There are many important points in this proyect: 1) Promote sustainable uses of marine techniques for human alimentation, 2) Develope many scientific investiagtion in this area, 3) Conservation of many species and habitats.

Monitoring surveys and results

Edit project overview to modify the Monitoring survey and results.


Many measures to get this points: Dunes regeneration, elimination of plastic waste, sustainable uses of many techniques (fishing, seafood collection...), protection of intertidal space... As a result, O Grove has become in a rout of passage for many groups of birds that come from North Europe and Africa. Furthermore is a good place for the breeding of birds like Charadrius alejandrinus.

Lessons learnt

Edit project overview to modify the lessons learnt.


The colaboration between citizenship and scientifist can be possible and many habitats can be protected and conserved for diversity.
