Happy International Day of Forest!
Today, we celebrate the importance of forests and the crucial role they play in sustaining life on Earth. As we commemorate this day, let us also remember our responsibility in protecting and preserving our natural resources.
Here in Sardinia, we are fortunate to have a diverse range of forests, from the Mediterranean scrub to the centuries-old oak forests. These forests not only provide a home for many plant and animal species, but they also contribute to the local economy through sustainable forestry and ecotourism.
Juniper is a plant species that holds significant cultural and ecological value in Sardinia. It’s commonly used in traditional Sardinian cuisine, especially for seasoning meats and cheeses. Juniper is also a key element of the island’s natural landscape, playing an important role in maintaining the biodiversity of Sardinia’s flora and fauna. Despite its importance, juniper forests in Sardinia are under threat from human activities such as deforestation and overgrazing. It’s essential to protect and conserve these valuable ecosystems for the benefit of both the environment and the local communities.
To show our support for the forests, Alghero Tours is committed to promoting sustainable tourism and responsible hiking practices. Join us on our hiking tours to explore the beauty of Sardinian forests while minimizing our impact on the environment.
