Default Climate change pilot scheme in Pollensa


The Ariant biological reserve in Pollensa is being used for a pilot scheme to adapt land in the Tramuntana Mountains to the impact of climate change. Measures include the reduction of CO2 emissions by crushing what is pruned and cut rather than burning. Trees are to be planted which require little water, and new refuges are to be created for bees.

... The Ariant finca is run by the Mediterranean Wildlife Foundation. In March, the foundation planted 75 new olive trees and will follow this up with trees that don't require irrigation, such as almonds and carobs, and which are more resistant to possible changes in the climate. Carobs are good sources of food for sheep and donkeys, while almond blossom produces nectar and pollen for bees.

... The increase in torrential rainfall has a negative effect because of flooding and erosion. This rain also affects the likes of black vultures. The foundation has noted that chicks have been lost as a result of excessive rainfall.
