LIFE medCLIFFS notice boards on invasive alien species at Cap de Creus

The six notice boards about LIFE medCLIFFS are already available for consultation in different places throughout the Natural Park of Cap de Creus and its surrounding area.

They have been installed at six key points with the aim of informing about the project and the demonstration areas of action, as well as educating and raising awareness about the negative effects of invasive alien flora and how it affects the biodiversity of the Mediterranean cliffs.

Beside this, the notice boards include information about the invasive species with the greatest negative impact on this habitat (prickly pear cactus, gazania and cat’s claw) and also about the endemic species to be conserved and enhanced that may be affected by this problem: the seseli of Cap de Creus (Sesseli farrenyi) and the two limoniums Limonium geronense and Limonium tremolsii.

Practical advice to help prevent the spread of invasive species and other information resources are also provided.


The notice boards are strategically located in busy areas with high-value native flora affected by invasive plants, such as Mas Caials, Paratge de Tudela, Portlligat and Cala Portaló (Cadaqués), Cala Pelosa (Roses) and the S’Arenella lighthouse (Port de la Selva).



These notice boards are intended to improve the awareness of both local people and visitors to the Park about the problem of invasive species and to inspire a positive change in their behaviour to help conserve the Mediterranean cliffs.
