Local farmers protecting butterfly habitat

Urbión Model Forest, Spain. In the Abejar region, the dusky large blue butterfly has been threatened by changes in livestock management activities. Through the Urbión Model Forest (Spain), the municipality, local farmers and an NGO have signed a land stewardship agreement to preserve its fragile habitat. The Model Forest is raising awareness of both the value of traditional seasonal movement of livestock and ways to reduce its impact on the butterfly. This video is in Spanish.
