Recently, the Tormes-E.B Foundation ( carried out an inventory of the presence of fauna around of the Santa Engracia Mine, Peñalén (Guadalajara, Spain), which is being restored within the framework of the LIFE RIBERMINE project (LIFE18 ENV/ES/000181) co-financed by the LIFE Programme of the EU.

The aim of this monitoring is to create an objective and contrasting reference point on the faunal communities that inhabit the area of action, so that it can be compared with different moments in the development of the project and naturally with the final phase of the restoration, revealing which taxa have been favored by the intervention. The information collected will also be useful to determine a series of measures to be adopted during the restoration in order to speed up and favor the “refaunation” processes and the connectivity of the restored spaces with the environment.
