J. García Carrión protects the endangered Great Bustard
The company has reserved, in the farm of his Huelva plant, 250 hectares as a nature park dedicated to protect the birds living there.
The Great Bustard the largest bird in Europe and the heaviest flying bird in the world. Its population, which once occupied the Eurasian steppes, survive today in certain areas with cereal crops.
It is now seriously threatened by agricultural changes, urban development and expansion of infrastructure. There are still, however, some groups of them on the plains of grain from the center and south of the Iberian peninsula.
The geese have a high rate of mortality in the first days of life, mainly due to the limited coverage offered by their environment. With the advent of mechanization in the fields and the proliferation of sport hunters, geese populations have suffered a regression rampant and it will continue to disappear from their last enclaves.
J. García Carrión, who has been always very committed to environmental protection, has reserved within the farm of the Huelva plant an area of 250 hectares natural park, where the geese can live and reproduce in the best conditions, without any danger threatening them. In addition, the company has enabled food and water bowls for birds in the area.
In addition to promoting the protection of this endangered species, García Carrión is committed to the environment betting on ecological agriculture and on production system that respects the environment.
