Über dieses Projekt

Reforestation in the Estrecho Natural Park
Material Minimum Optimum
Fenced
Essential materials for the installation of a perimeter fence. The objective is to protect the area of action from the threat of cattle and wild boar, until the seedlings are sufficiently developed.
€ 700
Fuel
Fuel used to travel to plant nurseries and warehouses for the acquisition of basic materials.
€ 100
Seedlings and seeds
Acquisition of seeds and plant specimens of various sizes and of different species, both indigenous and traditional agricultural.
€ 1.450
Topsoil
To ensure the rooting and prosperity of our plants, it is necessary to correct the degradation of the soil by providing a little plant matter.
€ 350
Food for the plantation camp
With this money we will cover the living expenses of 20 volunteers during the planting week (Includes organic food, gas and water).
€ 1.400
Aufgabe Minimum Optimum
Research, management and execution of the project
For the project to come to life and go ahead with guarantees, it is necessary to dedicate a lot of time and hard work. Covering a year of research, organization, logistics, field work such as fencing construction and site preparation ... certainly require minimal reconnaissance.
€ 1.000
Bank fees and platform expenses
Banks, Paypal and the Goteo platform need to pay for their activity by charging a percentage of the money collected. This item would cover these expenses for the part of the minimum budget.
€ 450
Taxes to the Treasury
The money collected will be taxed as equity income in our account (and not as a donation). For this reason, we must also consider this expense, which would be 25% of the money collected. This amount will cover that expense in the minimum budget.
€ 960
Work tools
This job requires a lot of hands ... and tools too! We will need to buy some hoes, shovels and picks to be able to work in teams simultaneously.
€ 250
Irrigation system
We can trust nature and use various techniques to carry out the planting in the most optimal way for the survival of the plants. But if we want to make sure that the majority of the plants thrive, we should install a tank and a drip system in the most sensitive areas.
€ 350
Solar pump
To feed the irrigation system we need to pump water from the stream to the highest part of the farm. And we want the clean energy of the sun to be used for this.
€ 450
Video recording and montage
This money will be used to pay the professional who has collaborated in the recording, assembly and editing of the campaign videos. In this way we will also support youth employment.
€ 100
Translation and subtitling of the campaign
This item will be used to recognize the translation and interpretation work of a professional. In this way we will also support youth employment.

Allgemeine Informationen

In the planetary moment we currently live in, characterized by climate change , the destruction of entire ecosystems and the massive extinctions of flora and fauna ...

REFORESTATION IS ONE OF THE BEST WEAPONS TO FIGHT FOR LIFE!

This project was born out of frustration and anger when seeing how the human being is destroying his own home . But far from staring or lamenting, we have decided to turn that anger into action.

WE ARE GOING TO WORK TO RECOVER THE ORIGINAL FOREST of a part of the Estrecho Natural Park, in Tarifa, the southernmost point of Europe (Cádiz, Spain).

! [] (// data.goteo.org/700x0/contraste-bosque-y-pradera.jpg)

The chosen place

The area that we are going to regenerate will be a total of 10,000 m2 approx. A land degraded by the historical pressure of human activities, in the final stretch of the Guadalmesí River. This corridor of life, which links the Estrecho Natural Park with the Alcornocales Natural Park, represents one of the jewels of the biosphere .

It is a must for many migratory birds (such as vultures, eagles or storks) and is home to countless very valuable species of flora and fauna (such as oaks, cork oaks, ferns or otters, amphibians, genets, roe deer...). In addition, it houses the last remnants of the ancient laurel forest , also known as cloud forest. A rich jungle that connected the Mediterranean basin with Eurasia and Northwest Africa, more than 20 million years ago. Today, in Europe, it only survives in the canute of the Guadalmesí River and some islands of Macaronesia.

Without a doubt, for all this ITS CONSERVATION IS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE!

The challenges we face

  1. Massive felling of the forest for logging.

  2. Excessive presence of livestock that prevents its own natural regeneration.

  3. Excessive presence of wild boars that stir and loosen the earth.

  4. Terrain characterized by a strong slope .

  5. Seasonal episodes of heavy rains and long droughts .

The sum of all these factors favor the loss of the fertile layers of the land and cause a constant degradation of the ecosystem.

Hauptmerkmale

The objectives we pursue

  • Protection against erosion.

  • Promoting regeneration of fertile soil.

  • Planting of different species of native flora (Cork oaks, oaks, palm hearts, ferns, strawberry trees...).

  • Plantation of traditional fruit species (figs, almonds, olives, citrus, walnuts...).

The main objective will be the recovery of the autochthonous forest , conceiving it so that it can also be used by people. This will generate an edible forest that allows a perfect synergy between human beings and the natural environment .

The actions that we will carry out

  1. Protection of the area with the installation of a temporary fence , avoiding the presence of cattle but respecting their usual path towards the mountain. This will promote the natural regeneration of the ecosystem in coexistence with the traditional livestock activity .

  2. Placement of natural obstacles (stones, logs...) to generate terraces and thus favor the retention of water and soil in critical areas.

  3. Excavation of water retention trenches (swales) in the steepest parts.

  4. Sowing and planting of native forest species , accelerating the regeneration process and further promoting the retention of water and soil, the production of organic matter and the increase in biodiversity. Agricultural species typical of the area will also be added to generate an edible forest .

Warum das wichtig ist

The motivation for the development of this project arises from several reasons:

• Because of the awareness of the dangerous ecological moment that we are living in (climate change, loss of biodiversity, pressure from human activities, increase in invasive alien species, etc.).

• By the identification of numerous signs of degradation in certain parts of the environment (little vegetation cover, large number of diseased trees, strong soil erosion, etc.).

• For the love of nature in general, which welcomes us and gives us life, and the Guadalmesí Valley in particular, home (increasingly threatened) to countless high-value species.

For all these reasons, WE ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO PARTICIPATE! Whether it is contributing money, spreading the word about the campaign or taking the shovel and planting a tree...

BECAUSE WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR PLANET AND BECAUSE EVERY LITTLE ACTION COUNTS!
