It is now moving to the Fonseya Centre (Oseja de Sajambre) in the heart of the Picos de Europa National Park. It will remain there until the 13th of April.

Visitors will be able to learn about the peculiarities of this species, its habitat and distribution, associated flora and fauna, the threats to which it is subject and the conservation and improvement measures on which the project is acting, in addition to the explaination of the Natura 2000 Network.

The LIFE BACCATA project works for the conservation and restoration of the priority habitat of the yew tree, currently threatened and in regression, in fifteen sites of the Natura 2000 Network of the Cantabrian Mountain Range and belonging to Galicia, Castilla y León, and the Pais Vasco.
