Steppes

we work for biodiversity conservation in soils, water and air

We work with over 60 farmers on more than 15,000 hectares to ensure their conservation.

Spain is home to the last and most important populations of European steppe birds. We work with more than 60 farmers in more than 15.000 hectares to ensure their conservation 

Traditional dry-farming crops, especially cereal crops, have been over the centuries the place for steppe birds like the quail, the Little bustard or the Iberian sandgrouse. The changes in and intensification of traditional farming practices are some of the most important reasons for the decline of these species.
