The United Nations in the General Assembly decided to proclaim March 3 as International World Nature Day, to sensitize human beings, about its importance of flora and fauna.
And conserve species of fauna more emblematic and threatened, such as rhinos, tigers, mountain gorillas, pandas … As well as innumerable natural areas that are increasingly threatened as the Amazonian, Indonesian jungles, … With this celebration the Convention was reaffirmed International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
Our dehesas of the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche, together with the northern sierra of Seville and the Sierra de Hornachuelos, were declared Biosphere Reserves in 2002 by UNESCO.
The World Network of Biosphere Reserves plays a key role in the conservation of life, trying to make ecological, scientific, genetic, social, cultural, economic, educational, recreational contributions … With sustainable development and well-being for humanity.
The Sierra de Jabugo group is committed to a responsible production of 100% Iberian acorn-fed pigs, in the own dehesas that it has in the north of the province of Huelva, Badajoz and Seville.
On October 28, 1982, the General Assembly of the United Nations, in its resolution 37/7, approved the World Charter of Nature.
According to this letter, five general conservation principles were proclaimed according to which all human behavior that affects nature must be guided and judged:
- Nature will be respected and its essential processes will not be disturbed.
- The genetic viability of the land will not be threatened; the population of all species, wild and domesticated, will be maintained at a level at least sufficient to guarantee their survival; likewise, the necessary habitats for this purpose will be safeguarded.
- These conservation principles will apply to all parts of the earth’s surface, both on land and at sea; special protection will be granted to those of singular character, to the representative specimens of all the different types of ecosystems and to the habitats of the species or endangered.
- The ecosystems and organisms, as well as the terrestrial, marine and atmospheric resources that are used by man, will be managed to achieve and maintain their optimal and continuous productivity without thereby endangering the integrity of the other ecosystems and species with which coexist.
- Nature will be protected from destruction caused by wars or other acts of hostility.
