The objective of the LIFE OREKA MENDIAN MENDIAN project, “Conservation and management of mountain pastures in the Basque Country”, is to conserve the grazing habitats of community interest in Protected Natural Spaces by means of maintaining traditional livestock usage, given that the progressive abandon of grazing systems is considered to be the main reason why these pastures are among the European habitats under greatest threat.

This affirmation raises a large number of questions: What is really happening in mountain livestock farms? What are the causes and the tendencies of change? What challenges are faced by mountain spaces and the farmers and shepherds who manage them? What strategies are developed by the farms which remain in place today to tackle the socioeconomic and environmental changes? What are the consequences of the changes in grazing habits on the state of conservation of pastures and of our mountains??

In this Intermediate Seminar of the LIFE OREKA MENDIAN project, an endeavour will be made to answer these questions and to place emphasis on new technologies as monitoring tools to support the planning of actions to conserve and manage our mountain pastures.
