A project to restore species that are currently in danger of disappearing from the lake area of Banyoles.

The documentary is divided into 12 chapters with a duration of 8 minutes. They will issue once a week, with the aim of publicizing the problem of invasive alien species and the different actions that are developed to control them in the Lake.

The order of issue of the chapters is as follows:

  • 3. The case of the Lake of Banyoles.
  • 4. Exotic fish.

  • 8. Native freshwater turtles.
  • 9. Exotic flora.
  • 10. Scientific monitoring.
  • 11. Difusion.
  • 12. Conclusions.

The program combines images of the lake area with images and interviews with both managers, government representatives and technicians that are developing the project, with interventions of scientists and specialists in biological invasions at the state level. The Consortium has commissioned the production of the documentary in the company FromZero Banyoles.
