IMPROVEMENTS THAT RESULT IN INCREASED BIODIVERSITY

Verde Esmeralda from its beginning took steps that will harmonize agriculture with life. We try to generate new ways to relationship with nature that allow us to stop fighting it, to start working and allying with her. From our absolute admiration for the nature, we have started to take multitude of measures for increase biodiversity of our farms.

ADAPTATION OF IRRIGATIONS PONDS ORIENTED TO ESTABLISH WILDLIFE (ANIMAL/FAUNA)

We have installed different types of floating islands that assist, to nesting of aquatic birds. With this project we have converted our irrigations pons into an oasis for endangered aquatic birds like: “La Focha Moruna”, “La Cerdeta”, “La malsavía” or “La Cigüeña”.
We achieve to maintain the natural balance in a wetland created by the man.


IMPLANTATION OF VEGETATION IN IRRIGATIONS PONDS

We solve in an ecological way problems of algae explosion, letting grow up submerged vegetation. In this way, we have solved plugging problems and we have achieved a home for invertebrates and vertebrates animals.

With this implantation, water quality has improved due the oxygen, suspension solids fixing and mainly nutrients are removed avoiding explosive growth of algae.

ENABLING BREEDING ZONES FOR REPTILES AND AMPHIBIANS

We have taken steps inside the fence of irrigation ponds to create an alternative habitat for a lot of amphibians. There are specific zones around the rafts for improved the colonization of reptiles and amphibians, animals with large conservation problems due to the reduction of
natural areas.
