Fundació Emys is a non-lucrative entity dedicated to nature conservation, specially in wet zones and of the European pont turtle (Emys orbicularis), thorugh investigation, management, conseravation, education and sensibilization.
The entity works with the territory actors, helping them doing a sustainable management, promoting the agroecology, sustainable forestry management, environmental education and ecotourism.
Fundació Emys works through investiagions, management and education in forest, agrarian and wet zones to prosper its conservation.
We work with land owners, managers, experts and users of the territory to promote a long term biodiversity conservation, where the different actors of the territory take part ot its sustainable management.
The foundation objective is the study, protection and divulgation of the natural and cultural heritage linked to the natural environment through land stewardships, with special emhasis in wet zones and the European pond turtle.
Fundació Emys accomplishes its purposes while promoting the environmental volunteering and, specially, the natural heritage conservation between young people and disadvantaged collectives.
Fundació Emys’ project was born in 1987 with ADEPAR, a few young people from Riudarenes grouped together to conserve several wet zones with European pond turtle populations.
In 2003, with Riudarenes’ town hall support and some patrons, the project takes a definitive impulse and Fundació Emys is created, for the natural heritage conservation in Catalunya.
