On 21-24 May, the Alicante municipality of Dénia hosted the 13th edition of Biodiversity Week, organised by the Wildlife Service of the Community of Valencia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change, and Rural Development with sponsorship from Red Eléctrica de España for the sixth consecutive year.

Over the course of the event, 144 researchers, naturalists and technicians from the Ministry collected field samples from the natural parks of Montgó and Marjal de Pego-Oliva, and the marine reserve of Cap de Sant Antoni, to expand the flora and fauna records and update the information available in the Community of Valencia’s Biodiversity Data Bank.

The event also featured a programme of talks, guided tours, workshops, children’s activities, and a release of birds of prey, among other activities. For its part, Red Eléctrica presented the Posidonia oceanica seagrass meadow recovery project. The work of planting Posidonia oceanica fragments to restore two hectares of the Red Eléctrica Marine Forest in the Bay of Pollensa (Balearic Islands) began in April.

Red Eléctrica’s manager in the Community of Valencia, Maite Vela; the regional secretary of Environment and Climate Change, Francisco Quesada; and the Mayor of Dénia, Vicent Grimalt, attended the closing ceremony of the 13th edition of Biodiversity Week, where they delivered a positive assessment of the data collected over the course of the event.

This is one of the initiatives developed by the Red Eléctrica Group as part of the recently approved 2030 Sustainability Commitment that promotes collaboration with regional and local governments to drive economic and social development and the promotion of natural capital in the areas where the company is present.
