On July 10 took place Masia Mariona the third workshop to discuss the reintroduction of the newt of Montseny

Within the framework of action C.15 (Identification of potential reintroduction areas of the Montseny newt), the third workshop took place with the objective of deciding, in a consensual way, the strategy to carry out the reintroduction of new populations of the Montseny newt to their natural habitat.

The meeting took place on Wednesday 10 July in Masia Mariona (Fogars de Montclús), in the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve.

In this 3rd workshop, it was necessary to define and reach a consensus among all the participants on a model for reintroducing the species:

  • To define possible locations according to the planned objectives.
  • Assessment of how the new populations should be.
  • Determine which elements define the carrying capacity.

 

The workshop was attended by 18 specialists in the fields of research, natural heritage management and administration.
The debate was led by researchers from the Forest Technology Centre of Catalonia and CREAF.

 

Previously, the 1st and 2nd reintroduction workshops had been held.
