A great setting and refuge for emblematic species such as the chamois or the wood grouse, the Alinyà Mountain Nature Space is located in the Catalan Pre-Pyrenees, the only region in Europe where you can see with ease the four species of vultures that live on the Old Continent: Common Vulture, Bearded Vulture, Black Vulture and the Egyptian Vulture.ALL THE SPACES IN THE NETWORK
The task of the Foundation
The Alinyà Mountain is, by far, by extension, the most significant territorial action of the Foundation. Currently, two very important projects are being developed by the Foundation:
Integra Pyrenees Foundation: Foundation created to forestally manage the space and use the wood to produce biomass.
Campus in Environmental Sciences UAB - Alinyà: Interaction with the university world to promote research and development, making available to all interested parties various facilities and services of accommodation, catering and transport in special conditions.
It is a collaborative project between the areas of Territory and the Environment and Knowledge and Research of the Foundation, the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) and the Faculty of Sciences of the UAB.
Moreover, work has been carried out to find out in depth about the natural values of the property and a management plan has been elaborated that includes all the aspects that must be developed in the short and medium term.
