03/11/2017 After the fire

The terrible fire that has upset the SCI xerothermal oases and Rocciamelone and, in particular, the Municipality of Mompantero, has finally been tamed, but the level of guard in the whole area affected by the fire remains high. Numerous teams of firefighters and Bosch Fire Fighting Volunteers (AIB) still patrol the streets and woods without stopping to prevent new fires and extinguish small outbreaks that occasionally come back. The time has come to sum up what has happened in the SCI and in the areas affected by the LIFE Xero-grazing project, in order to assess the effects of the fire on wildlife and flora and than to take into account the damages suffered as LIFE project.
