C5. Application of grazing management guidelines

 The action C5 is in progress.

A significant area of habitat 6210* will be placed in active management, as defined and planned during the course of A4. Sheep flockThe goal is to implement the guidelines deemed necessary for habitat management for conservation purposes and to monitor over time, the impact on grasslands and other valuable fauna and flora (particularly orchids and steno-Mediterrany species). The action will include the two sectors (in an estimated area of 83 ha) and will involve:

1. The recognition of an agreement with a company selected via public tender for the management of the service flock.

2. The use of alternate grazing within the flock in the two sectors of intervention, will be used in the manner and dates stated during the course of A4.  These actions could be updated or modified based on the results of monitoring.
