The CONVIVE LIFE project continues to expand its network of contacts. Representatives of the coordinating beneficiary of the project (IHCantabria) and of Aves Cantábricas S.L. made a visit to the Basque Country on November 12th, during which they were able to visit, together with representatives of the Government of the Basque Country and the Provincial Council of Guipúzcoa, the working areas of the LIFE projects Restoration of habitats of Community interest in estuaries in the Basque Country (LIFE08NAT/ES/000055) and LIFE Tremedal (LIFE11NAT/ES/707) in which, as in the case of the CONVIVE LIFE project, actions were carried out to eliminate and control the allochthonous species Baccharis halimifolia.
Thus, during the visit we were able to get to know the actions carried out in Txingudi, Jaizkibel and the river Lea, within the framework of these LIFE projects, as well as to discuss the importance of the periodic control of the previously treated areas, due to the great capacity of the species to regrow and the easy dispersion of its seeds.
