The PSOE Yecla presents the project "Yecla, land Wildcats' to diversify the economy and invest in the rural tourism (13/09/2011)

The Socialists claim that "Yecla meets all the requirements to join this European funded project would involve an investment of millions of euros, would create more than one hundred direct jobs and numerous indirect, improve environmental conditions in our city and facilitate hundreds of economic opportunities around the rural tourism and environmental regeneration of an endangered species like the Iberian Lynx. "

For more than three months, the PSOE in Yecla, has been working to gather information Lince Life Project, a project to recover and save the Iberian lynx from extinction.

In this regard, the PSOE had conomiento Yecla the implementation of the project Iberlince and aims to restore the historic distribution of Iberian lynx through areas of Andalucia, Castilla-La Mancha, Murcia, Extremadura and Portugal, as well as strengthening the numbers of the species, both copies are as people, establishing new areas identified as appropriate.

The main objective of the project, called 'Iberlince', is to increase populations of this species from 270 in 2010 to 450 individuals in 2016, allowing a step down the level of threat to this species.

The project has a duration of 60 months - from September 1 this year until August 31, 2016 - and is beneficial to our country to the Ministry of Environment of the Junta de Andalucía, Life is the third approved by the European Commission, recalling that this species is threatened carnivorous mammal in Europe.

Presented as a transnational initiative between Spain and Portugal, which aims to restore the historic distribution of Iberian lynx through areas of Andalucia, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura and Portugal, the project has been approved under the program LIFE + Nature and Biodiversity work to strengthen the numbers of the species, both in existence and in populations, and establish new populations in areas identified as appropriate.

The total project budget amounts to more than 34 million euros, of which the European Community finances a 61.57%, ie more than 20.9 million euros, while the other partners contribute 13 million euros, 38.43%.

Thus, Life Lynx projects working to improve the conservation status of this species by improving knowledge and understanding of their needs, developing captive breeding and release, and a program for the development of rabbit populations .

It also seeks to introduce copies individually to increase the number of species existing populations and increase genetic diversity of them.

In addition, work is attempting to increase the breeding and survival rates for what would improve the habitat.

On the other hand, emphasizes the goal of facilitating a measurable demographic connectivity between hearts through corridors and natural corridors.

Citizen Participation

This Life also presented has been taken into account the acceptance and participation, a cornerstone in the conservation of the species.

Today's society has been particularly noticeable in the initiative to reintroduce individuals to form new wild populations in the historical areas of settlement of the species, as is the town of Yecla

This important social support is also channeled through the implementation of cooperation agreements with private landowners, environmental associations and societies of hunters.

One of the objectives of the project is to identify areas with sufficient resources for the reintroduction of populations and try to establish autonomous four new towns on the mainland.

The possibilities that would facilitate the development of this project for the regeneration of the lynx would be so numerous as important.

If the City of Yecla has a policy of promotion and publicity surrounding the lynx is available in our municipality throughout a nature reserve with a significant increase in environmental awareness at the same time promoting a new economic sector in our town as it would tourism.

Transversality would imply an environmental, educational, economic and tourism that would give a new impetus to the city with a reputation in the Spanish Levant related to nature, the introduction to the school in biodiversity and attracting many tourists.
