The implication and involvement of the inhabitants of the corridor in the habitat improvement actions have been a very important part of the project. Among other activities, several volunteer days have been held with a remarkable success, in which 226 volunteers have participated. In August 2015, 36 volunteers from the town of Cármenes participated in an interpretative route and seed collection for the production of seedling for the project. In October 2015, 20 volunteer workers from Gas Natural Fenosa planted the first 150 trees on the land acquired by the project in Gete. In the same area, three other volunteer activities were developed in April, October and December 2016, in which 58, 61 and 74 volunteers planted more than 750 trees together. In October 2016 and in the framework of the Participatory Meetings of the project, a visit was also carried out with the participation of 61 people. These activities have allowed many people in the area to know and participate in the project, contributing to disseminate and improve the awareness about the importance of the conservation of the brown bear and its presence in this area.
