Goats against forest fires

Talking about a revolution (Ausgabe II/2020)


After the recent years of forest fires in Portugal, goats are being used in a pilot project to prevent further fires. They graze, keeping the grass short in particularly dangerous places, making them slower to burn. Since 2017, Portugal has been hit by devastating fires every summer and the landscape is only gradually recovering. Various measures are therefore being implemented. Trees along the roads, for example, have to be cut back more heavily to prevent fires from spreading.
