Equilibrio ecológico y colaboración, el impulso hacia un futuro cada día más sostenible

Ecological balance and collaboration, the drive towards an increasingly sustainable future

The concept of balance can be defined as the equilibrium between two or more situations. The term is applicable to different fields, such as physics or economics, but today we will focus on the environment. In speaking of "ecological balance" we cannot fail to mention one of the most valuable natural habitats on the Iberian Peninsula, the Iberian dehesa grassland.
