Fundem Speech COP25

Dear members,

Yesterday, Tuesday 3 December, our volunteer Silvia Martínez Rocher was present at the COP25 in Madrid and made a presentation at a session on Climate and Heritage. Together with Andrew Potts, coordinator of Climate Heritage Network and the rest of the delegation of the International National Trusts Organisation (INTO), they defended the importance of natural and cultural heritage in closing gaps for climate action.

Here you have the video of the presentation so that you can listen to it and reflect on it:

Down you will find several photos of the event and a PDF with the base of the speech to read it.


The Bearded Volture Project

The Bearded Volture Project, led by the Generalitat Valenciana in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment, the Government of Aragon, the Generalitat of Catalonia and the Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF), is a project that was forged between 2015 and 2017 to return the species to a space where it lived until the nineteenth century and where it probably became extinct due to persecution and poison: La Tinença de Benifassà in Castellón (Spain).

FUNDEM, has been an active part of this project by ceding the land of Mas del Peraire for the development of any type of activity and has also collaborated in the recent Volunteer Program (attached report).

Here you have the "Bearded Volture Newsletter"  (only in Spanish) , to find out how the reintroduction of birds in the area has evolved and how their behaviour has been monitored since the beginning of the Project.
