They sign the agreement for the Life+ Ripisilvanatura project, that aims to recover the riparian forest and associated fauna

UMU and CHS will collaborate in the recovery of the riparian forest and the fight against AIS in the Segura River. Antonio García Fernández, Vice-Chair for Research at UMU, and Miguel Ángel Ródenas, Chair for CHS, signed last 21st of July the agreement for the LIFE+RIPISILVAMATURA Project. Co- funded by the European Union, this Project entails an investment of nearly 2,5 m€, and it aims to recover and protect the riparian forest in the middle stretch of the River Segura, an area comprised within the terrotory of the Moratalla, Calasparra & Cieza municipalities. The goal will be achieved via the control of AIS (those found out of their natural distribution area and affecting in a negative way the native ecosystem), chiefly in the priority habitat of gallery forest with willows and poplars. Together with UMU and CHS, the environmental organization ANSE, the Regional Government of Murcia, and the city halls of Cieza and Calasparra are also partners of the Project.
