Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The restoration aims to undertake the recovery of the ecological integrity of the environment on which they act and the enhancement of cultural and heritage resources for tourism use, based on the inherent variability of the area channel, in terms of biodiversity and ecological processes and functions, in a historical context, which also takes into account sustainable traditional uses. The main purpose of this project is the comprehensive restoration of the area, which has to be clearly defined sub-sections of ecological restoration, and those in which, based on the characteristics of the area, the rehabilitation must be compatible area with a touristic use.

Works included removal of exotic plants (Eucalyptus).
