Volunteers establish a new riparian forest in Lorquí (11/03/2019)

On the morning of Saturday, September 09, almost fifty volunteers have proceeded to plant almost 250 seedlings of various species of river bank that will form a new riverbank forest in the Segura River.

The activity has been organized by ANSE with the collaboration of the City Council of Lorquí and is part of a volunteer project funded by TRAGSATEC with the collaboration of the Water Commissioner.

The plantation comes to join the one carried out last year on the opposite bank with the support of the City Council of Ceutí.

The two municipalities and ANSE are collaborating to advance in the recovery of this plant formation through a Territory Custody agreement.

More than 40 volunteers have planted almost 250 seedlings of various plant species from the banks of the Segura River to establish a new mass of gallery forest to replace the cane fields (an invasive exotic species).

The action organized by the Association of Naturalists of the Southeast is part of the project "Volunteering for the development of River Custody in the Segura Basin" funded by TRAGSATEC and with the collaboration of the Water Commissioner.

The aforementioned project continues and develops the recovery actions of the fluvial ecosystem that are being carried out with the participation of the City Councils of Lorquí and Ceutí, as well as various entities of both municipalities: Civil Protection volunteers from Ceutí, Avíque Lorquí, Asociación de Friends of the Caves and Heritage of Lorquí, Manages and Breathes Renewable Energies among others.

It is worth highlighting the collaboration of Almacenes COALIMAR and CMG Alimentación.

Undoubtedly, the social movement established by both peoples around the recovery of the river will help the restoration of the riverbank forest, and they constitute an extraordinary example of collaboration between different entities.

The objective of the initiative is to advance in the recovery of the riparian ecosystem in the Segura River through the establishment of a new riparian forest stain: a deciduous tree formation that allows to remove large amounts of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and that provides valuable ecosystem services to society acting as a reservoir of biodiversity, allowing the decontamination of water, or controlling erosion, among others.

It is estimated that only 6% of the banks of the Segura River are covered by this type of vegetation and their recovery should be a priority.
