The relationship between Trangoworld and the F.C.Q. started in 2008 sharing the same concerns regarding the current environmental issues, in this case focused in a protected species sush as the Gypaetus Barbatus, the Lammergeier.
The F.C.Q. has its headquarters in Zaragoza but has also a strong presence in the Eco Museum-Visitors Center of the Ainsa Castle (Huesca) and the Center for Biodiversity and Sustainable Development “Las Montañas del Quebrantahuesos” in Benia de Onís (Asturias). Furthermore, it is present in the el Breeding Centre for the Lammergeier in Human Isolation (CRIAH) in La Alfranca (Zaragoza) and the Biological Station Monte Perdido (EBMP) in Revilla (Huesca) managed together with the Dutch non profit organisation LammerGier Fonds (LGF).
The Fundación para la Conservación del Quebrantahuesos bases its activity in the following five lines of action:
1. Conservation and defence of the environement with actions in coordination with different entities to establish measures for the conservation of biodiversity.
2. Design of corrective measures against actions that may affect biodiversity.
3. Investigation in collaboration with research centres in order to increase knowledge about biodiversity.
4. Environmental education with public communication and environmental education campaigns designed to achieve behaviour changes and increase the understanding of environmental problems, coupled with the analysis of possible solutions, in collaboration with different institutions.
5. Rural development and ecotourism with sustainable development programmes that generate a sustainable income and improve quality of life in the territory.
All year round, most of the field work of the F.C.Q. is the the location, identification and monitoring by radiofrequency of Lammergeier specimens, mainly in the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa where several ones have recently been reinserted.
Currently there are 128 birds monitored with ages ranging from 27 years old to several chicks with a few months of life such as Lorien, Niebla, Hugo and Sol, recently released in the surroundings of the Lakes of Covadonga.
Also, the F.C.Q. participates and promotes different types of projects related to environmental protection, both domestic and cross-border, currently working on a project to create new breeding territories in the Maestrazgo and the Sierra de Gredos.
