Since 2017, the gardens of the headquarters of the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC – CSIC, UCLM, JCCM), located on the Ciudad Real Campus of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), are managed to improve its biodiversity.
Eliminating the use of pesticides, planting flowering meadows, planting indigenous shrubs, and placing a fountain are measures that have begun to bear fruit for make a more biodiverse and pleasant work environment.
Therefore, from IREC we make a monitoring the species of birds and plants that surround us in our workplace and we make this information available to society to raise awareness of the importance of conserving our biodiversity also in urban environments.
