Natura 2000 Coronat Madres

natura
The site of Col de la Llosa, with a remarkable wealth of flora and fauna, is located within the perimeter of the Natura 2000 Coronat Madres.

A fragile environment
Human activities are carried out and must take into account the habitats and species of flora and fauna of community interest, that are registered in Fauna Flora Habitat Directive or the Birds Directive.

But in recent years, the practice of outdoor sports, especially that of snowshoeing has increased considerably. It runs thus increasingly into sensitive areas hitherto spared. So today, it is necessary to reconcile the promotion of professional use (NPC) with the requirements for protection of sensitive natural habitats.

The area of La Llose - Clavera offers the opportunity to practice various outdoor activities. Thus, the site including skiing and snowshoe trails on large winter and hikers and mountain biking during the remainder of the year.

Among the community contained in the Habitat Directive Flora and Fauna on the site of Col de la Llose, there are 62 natural habitats, 20 of which are of community interest and have priority 3.

The main natural habitats with high sensitivity with regard to tourism development are Bogs, 63 are listed on the site. The only species known high sensitivity to the Col de la Llose is Capercaillie.

The issues in this area
-Reconciliation of outdoor activities with the preservation and enhancement of peatlands;
- Reconciliation of outdoor activities with the preservation of Capercaillie;
- Mutual respect of different activities on the land: recreation, hunting, pastoralism, forestry work.

The objectives that follow
-Forest management in partnership with all users. The forest management is necessary to safeguard the Capercaillie.
- The user awareness of and adherence to a code of good conduct, both for the Capercaillie and the areas of bogs.

 

Closing Clavera (Range): Schedule

To accommodate the various activities during the winter season, mainly on access to the area hunted and winter sports activities (skiing), mediation between the Commons, the Communal Associations of Hunting Authorised (ACCA) and the Office National Forest (ONF) has been made, thus helping to prevent security issues and use conflicts.

The Natura 2000 : schedules of use
Land management by professionals

To accommodate the various activities during the winter season, mainly on access to the area hunted and winter sports activities (skiing), mediation between the Commons, the Communal Associations of Hunting Authorised (ACCA) and the Office National Forest (ONF) has been made, thus helping to prevent security issues and use conflicts.

The forests of the regions high non-leased ACCA are hunted in organized battered by the NFB, occasionally, to control deer densities. We can evaluate the effort of hunting for 2 or 3 days spread between mid-October and mid-November. The websites are defined as late, clear signage is put in place the days of hunting.

For information on hunting days, contact NFB Hunting: 04 68 35 77 22.
The Commando Training Centre National

The firing ranges of the Tauss are regularly used by the National Commando Training Centre (CNEC). The schedule will be right here updated as and when (every month).

Actions undertaken, planned, permanent actions

Every year, as part of awareness raising, training days for those working in framing the professional uses and staff working on the site are made by the Association Manager of the Natural Reserve of Nohèdes.

The field days are also conducted every year to "observe" user behavior.

In winter, during the period the most "sensitive" to the Capercaillie, the Northern Area of Nordic Capcir combines activity with preservation of the Capercaillie. Often ephemeral works are put in place to block certain access: eg. mounds of snow.
Please respect these works ...

An exhibition and slide show are present on the Col de la Llose to explain the usefulness of these actions and understand the habitats and sensitive species.

Thus the charter of conduct setting out rules for behavior to save peat bogs and Capercaillie on the area of La Llose Clavera is now established. Its ownership by the users will be the only way to ensure the survival of this species emblematic of the Pyrenees and the bogs that are important in the water cycle ...

These awareness operations and environmental protection are financed by the General Council of Pyrenees-Orientales.
