LIFE TRANSFER

The Life Transfer project aims to improve the conservation status of habitat 1150* due to seagrass regression in 8 Natura 2000 sites in 3 Member States:

  • Italy – IT4060002 – IT4060005 – IT3270023 – IT3270017

  • Greece – GR2110001 – GR2110004

  • Spain – ES6200030 – ES0000260

The specific objectives are:

  1. Restoring and consolidating priority habitat 1150* in 6 coastal lagoons, by transplanting submerged phanerogams to promote ecosystem self-sustainability
  2. Contributing to achieve a good ecological state of transitional water demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed actions to pursue the objectives set in the WFD 2000/60/EC
  3. Quantifying the value of ecosystem services provided by the lagoon environments and the seagrass meadows
  4. Training of future trainers in this techniques, targeting site managers/professional not participating to the project to ensure transferability and replicability in other sites.
