Last Wednesday took place in Saragossa a seminar which dealt about new actions for the preservation ex situ for the Life Lutreola Spain project

From May 20th the Recovery Center for Wild Fauna of la Alfranca hosts Lenito, Laminero and Loireta, three new specimens of European mink, which enjoy a perfect health. Furthermore, another female which arrived to the Center at the same time that the mother of these three minks, gave birth to a new litter, thus fulfilling the main goal of the program within which all these actions are taking place.

This is the Life Lutreola Spain project, which works for contributing to preserving the European mink in Spain. This program, which since 2014 is taking place in the territories of the Basque Country, La Rioja, Aragón and the Comunidad Valencia, is coordinated by Tragsatec (Grupo TRAGSA).

This project, 75% of which is financed by the European Commission within the framework of the LIFE+ program, will be carried out from 2014 to 2018 in the Basque Country, La Rioja, Aragón, and the Comunidad Valenciana.

This project has the following main goals:

    1. Eliminating the nuclei of the American mink within the distribution areas and from the areas of risk of the European mink.
    2. Increasing the feasibility of the wild population of European mink through the reinforcement of their populations and the setup of new nuclei.
    3. And establishing a more effective follow-up network for assessing the status of both mink species.

In this sense, on June 15th, took place at Saragossa’s Aquarium a seminar on the preservation ex situ and the European mink reintroduction, which was attended by the General Coordinator of the Life Lutreola Spain project in the Quality, Environmental Assessment and The Environment department of Tragsatec.
