As part of the conservation works included in the LIFE Paludicola Project, the necessary tasks to improve water management for a sector of the Marjal del Moro marshlands have commenced.

The targeted outcome is the reconversion to wetlands of abandoned farming areas. A number of mounds must be removed to re-connect areas permanently under water with the new hydraulic infrastructure. A further task is to re-work the embankments to allow animals to circulate through the marsh. These slopes will be planted with iris (Iris pseudacorus) and great fen-sedge (Cladium mariscus) thus recovering autochthonous riparian vegetation and ensuring soil retention. Lastly, the ditches and canals channelling water into the marsh will be cleared with mechanical and manual means.

These works will continue up to the deadline established on 14 March, when the nesting season begins for some of the species on the marsh.
