Santillana teams up with the Spanish Bird Society (SEO, Sociedad Española de Ornitología), as part of the project entitled "alzando el vuelo" ("taking wing"), aimed at the conservation of the Spanish imperial eagle. This is one of the most emblematic birds of prey on the Spanish peninsula and is at risk of extinction.
Santillana has published a series of materials, which include posters and a pocket field guide, aimed at raising awareness and involvement among teachers and pupils of schools located in the areas where the Spanish imperial eagle lives.
The SEO/Birdlife is the first conservation association ever created in Spain. It was founded in 1954 with the aim of conserving wild birds and their habitat. It currently has more than 12,000 members and a much greater number of supporters who support its activities across the whole of Spain.
Its many activities not only target the conservation of birds and their habitat. They also include promoting awareness, appreciation and respect for birds, conducting scientific projects, educating about the environment and training teachers regarding aspects linked to the goals of SEO/Birdlife.
