Introduction of Horses in Natural environments
This project introduces rehabilitated domestic horses into natural spaces to improve biodiversity in certain areas while having the necessary conditions to live their life to the fullest, similar to their wild ancestors. We currently have two areas on loan around Girona, a 15-hectare area in Orfes, and an 18-hectare woodland area in Romanyà
Encourage equine and human wellbeing
Undertake a study on biodiversity and the environmental impact
Generate sustainable models of horse-keeping
We need to carry out a previous environmental study to be able to measure biodiversity indicators, that is, to verify that the introduction of horses in that space does not only respect the environment but also improves biodiversity. For this, a study on flora will be carried out, which will be undertaken by the Department of Botany of the University of Girona.
One of the objectives is to make this project viable in other areas of the Iberian Peninsula. Therefore, we are aiming to carry out a campaign to raise awareness of this project by collaborating with other organisations and giving talks to spread the ideas in other Spanish cities. The first events will take place in Madrid, Valencia, and Seville. For this campaign we will also have to invest in our website
We also need to cover the costs of the material which was invested in fencing both areas by the association’s volunteer team. This consists of rods, insulators, and electric fencing.
For these reasons, we encourage you to actively participate, donate, and spread the word!
Thank you very much!
