Goat farming in Spain has faced major changes over the last two decades. Traditional grazing systems on the Iberian Peninsula are deeply entwined with nature. This project aims to help goat farmers maintain and improve their extensive farming practices so they can keep providing vital ecological services in key regions.
We help goat farmers maintain and improve their extensive livestock farming practices so they can keep providing vital ecological services in key regions and threatened habitats where these activities are rapidly declining.
The project will create pilot experiences in three Spanish regions home to high biodiversity areas that need to be preserved and where goat farming is a key enabler: Castile-La Mancha, Extremadura and Valencia/Murcia.
