31/01/2019 08:37 h.

The exhibition of the newt of Montseny is open to the public and can be visited until 18 February. 

Until 18 February you can visit the exhibition 'My name is Calotriton and I only live in Montseny!' on the ground floor of the Edifici del Rellotge, in the premises of the Escola Industrial (Comte d'Urgell, 187) in Barcelona.

The exhibition is made up of eight informative panels and a scale reproduction of the Montseny newt that help to get to know this endemic species of the torrents of the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve.

Last Wednesday, January 30, at 12.30 pm, Daniel Guinart, coordinator of Life Tritó Montseny, presented the project to the staff of the Natural Spaces Services Management. Firstly, in the auditorium, he gave a talk to announce the actions and objectives planned for the four years that the project lasts (2016-2020). Afterwards, all together, we went down to the ground floor to visit the exhibition.

The Natural Spaces Services Management is located on the third floor of the Clock Building. Integrated in this Management is the Technical Office of Natural Parks, responsible for the management of the 12 natural spaces of the Diputació de Barcelona. Daily work is essential to preserve these spaces of high landscape, ecological and cultural value.

Thanks to all the people involved, together we work so that the project does not stop!
