The LIFE BEETLES project recently took part in the Pico Nature Park Advisory Board, in accordance with Action F.2 – Governance and Advisory Boards.

This was an opportunity to present to the councillors the progress of the various actions taking place on this island, namely the planting of around 4,300 endemic plants near Lagoa do Caiado, the completion of the installation of fences to exclude cattle in the intervention areas and the good results obtained after the removal of the invasive species Kahili Ginger.

Attendance at these annual meetings is an excellent tool for involving the different stakeholders in the project, as well as for promoting the discussion and integration of ideas and concerns that could contribute to the dissemination, integration and resolution of operational problems that the project may face throughout its implementation.
