Pinhal Interior AmbientePresent in the works of Pinhal Interior, the wild animal focused this month is the Cabrera’s Vole (Microtus cabrerae). It has been found in the field of study of Lot 7, but not in the direct area of allocation of the route. The conservation measures implemented at work site have included placing identifying signs in the places of confirmed presence and in habitat locations where they are likely to appear, as well as sealing these areas and protecting the known colonies, while preserving their habitats. Carrying out awareness and dissemination campaigns that aim to introduce the species and the main threats to which it is subject, are relevant conservation measures.
