Other forms of conservation

But the pastoral influence has still other benefits like the reduction of wildfires, by always keeping open spaces, since extensive pastoralism can limit tree growth and the accumulation of timber fuels. Such mobile communal pastoralist systems also benefit distant territories such as those of Sierra Morena, at over 150 kilometers away, where many of these pastoralists spend the winters with their animals. Their migration facilitates the transportation of seeds, and the implantation of new species in new spaces, creating new diverse ecological bonds! This would not be possible without the movement of the pastoralists all collectively concerted like an orchestra of infinite instrumentalists.
