Climate change, transformations of the territory, the intensive use of water and soil and their pollution, intensive agriculture, the spread of alien fauna species are among the causes that have contributed most to the degradation of habitats, reducing their rate biodiversity and the ability to provide traditional ecosystem services. Emilia Romagna is the experimental scenario of two innovative LIFE projects focused on the protection of biodiversity:
- the LIFE PERDIX project, which aims at the recovery and conservation of the Gray Partridge (Perdix perdix italica), declared extinct in the wild, through actions focused on genetic analysis, breeding in captivity and the reintroduction of viable populations within the site Natura 2000 Valle del Mezzano in the Po Delta;
- the LIFEGREEN4BLUE project, focused on supporting the biodiversity of drainage canals, through their environmental requalification and the contrast to two invasive alien species: the nutria and the Louisiana red shrimp.
Both projects envisage educational paths aimed at primary and secondary schools of I and II degree, different but equally important for raising students’ awareness of the protection of their territory. And together they share a 20-hour training course for teachers and a competition that involves the production of different communication tools, based on the school level.
THE EDUCATIONAL PROPOSALS OF THE TWO PROJECTS WILL BE PRESENTED
ON 29 September from 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm IN AN INFODAY ON WEB FOR THE TEACHERS OF EMILIA ROMAGNA
