Montseny's newt reaches schools!

The Life Tritó Montseny project exhibition reaches schoolchildren, hand in hand with the park rangers.

Toni Álvarez, forest ranger of the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve, brings the project's exhibition to primary school students. Yesterday he visited the Aqua Alba school in Gualba and explained the project to the fourth graders. All showed great interest in learning more about the Montseny newt. Toni valued very positively the good knowledge that the students had of this amphibian and the habitat in which it lives.

All together, they visited the exhibition of the Montseny newt that is temporarily located in the Masia Can Figueres (Gualba).


With the title "My name is Calotriton and I only live in Montseny", this exhibition is made up of eight panels and a scale reproduction of the Montseny newt that will help us to get to know this species which is an endemism of the torrents of the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve. 


The exhibition will visit, among other places, the eighteen municipalities of the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve.
