To further this effort, the Diputación Foral of Gipuzkoa has been working in the Nature Park and the Natura 2000 Special Area of Conservation (SAC) to date.
By preventing herbivores from entering, we aim to promote the germination of yew seeds produced by nearby specimens which may grow to a prominent size.

The Exhibition was moved from the Pagoeta Nature Park, where it remained since March 2020, –when COVID-19 restrictions were more severe.– It can be visited there up to February 2021 and then it will be moved to the interested municipalities nearby Aralar and Pagoetaat Nature Parks.

In the past June, improvement and conservation work to yew woods at the Special Area of Conservation (SAC), namely ‵Fuentes Carrionas and Fuente Cobre-Palencia Mountain’, located in Cervera de Pisuerga, in the Palencia Province,  by the Cesefor Foundation (a partner to the LIFE BACCATA Project), relying on the collaborati
LIFE BACCATA project has been one of the LIFE Nature projects selected to be part of the discussion panels of the 3rd Mediterranean Natura 2000 biogeographic seminar, held between 4-7 May 2021.

LIFE BACCATA project, whose main objective is to improve the conservation status of habitat 9580* in the Cantabrian Mountains, has met another of its goals set at the beginning of the project.
The last week of March 2021 the LIFE BACCATA arboretum was planted in Galicia. The plantation has been made up of a total of 20 yews (Taxus baccata), which are representative of the gene pool of the species in the Os Ancares - O Courel SAC (ES1120001).
On the occasion of the execution of LIFE BACCATA project, the IBADER from Terra Campus (Lugo) of the University of Santiago de Compostela has carried out an experience of exchange and transfer of information and knowledge generated by the project with
As a result of the work to collect more than 1,000 yew samples from 49 localities distributed in 30 ZECs of the Natura 2000 Network of the North of the Iberian Peninsula, and the subsequent analysis of 9 microsatellite DNA markers (SSR) using PCR techniques and automatic sequencer, it has been possible to determine the genetic diversity and the degree of kinship of the yew
