This project aims to focus on the biodiversity in the Lespezi Quarry in an educational manner, by means of birdwatching, doing sport and promenades, in order to raise awareness about the importance of the biodiversity within the quarry. We aim to create and improve the relationship between the quarry and the locals, explaining to them the benefits of this industry and engaging them in visiting the sites.
Rock climbing, birdwatching and observing trees and plants in the quarry area will strengthen the bonds between local community and the quarry.
