FireShepherds is an Erasmus+ project with the aim to prepare next generations of shepherds in the management of extensive livestock with wildfire prevention purposes. The project has its basis on different common problems that the project regions are currently facing: the decrease of shepherds working with animals in extensive regime and the large wildfires that visit us every summer. For that reasons, it is very important to start managing the forest again, as it was done decades ago. To do so, a proper training of shepherds from the next generations is a key action if we want to achieve a fire resilient landscape.
