Disclosing land stewardship in Agra do Orzán

16 November 2015

This afternoon we were in A Coruña giving a talk at the Agra do Orzán High School for fifteen students of the higher cycle of professional training, who are training both for Physical Activity and Sports Technicians and for Leisure Time Instructors.

These students had the opportunity to find out the main environmental problems of our area, they discovered the possibilities of dealing with them through land stewardship and they could get to know in detail our work in favour of the local biodiversity conservation.

During the talk we expressed the importance of dedicating part of our leisure time to nature conservation. Through their future careers, these students may encourage this commitment through activities organized in town halls, clubs and associations, helping to preserve these natural spots used as leisure areas, for walking or playing sports, which are also habitats where many threatened species find shelter, while providing essential ecosystem benefits.

We are grateful to the Escuela de Tiempo Libre Querqus (Querqus Leisure Time School) for allowing us to spread the word about our work and to IES Agra do Orzán.
