The LIFE FORESTALL Project

LIFE FORESTALL  has received funding from the LIFE Programme of the European Union.

CORILA is the Coordinating beneficiary. Project Associated beneficiaries and partners are: Provveditorato Interregionale per le Opere Pubbliche per il Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige e Friuli Venezia Giulia, SELC Soc. coop., WWF Oasi, Cooperativa Sociale Primavera ONLUS.

Anthropic pressures and climate changes put the specific biodiversity of this environment at risk and active protection actions are necessary to preserve it.
LIFE FORESTALL in fact has, as its main objective, the restoration and conservation of habitat 7210* Calcareous fens with Cladium mariscus and species of the Caricion davallianae and habitat 91E0* Alluvial forests of Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior, both priority according to the Habitat Directive (1992/43/EEC).

It also aims to contain some invasive exotic species such as tree and shrub plants Robinia pseudoacacia and Baccharis halimifolia and Silurus glanis (catfish).
