Consorcio Parque Natural de los Picos de Europa
Beneficiary Partner

El Consorcio del Parque Nacional de Picos de Europa (Consortium of the National Park “Picos de Europa”) is the competent authority in the conservation of protected species and sites. It manages the territory as an entity of national protection of prime importance (National Park) and also (National Park) and also Natura 2000 network and Biosphere Reserve.

This entity holds a wealth of experience in management and in particular, it has been active in the field of conservation of hay meadows since 2011, from a triple perspective: conservation of flora, butterflies and traditional agricultural practices.

With this project the organisation aims to transfer management experiences to other Red Natura 2000 sites and the possibility of implementing innovative methodologies that could lead to advances in the conservation of hay meadows at the speed required by their fast disappearance (and thus, the natural and cultural heritage involved).
