LIFE Steppe Farming – Concluded Project (September 2016 – December 2020)

The LIFE Estepas de La Mancha project strives to restore the balance between agriculture and steppe birds’ population — species emblematic of this unique ecosystem and the region’s biodiversity — by encouraging agri-environmental measures, promoting restoration of the landscape and improving the environment for steppe birds and the other wildlife that inhabits it. Agriculture that is sustainable from farm to fork, achieved through good farming practices, is the key to conserving the rich biodiversity of the La Mancha steppe.
