This project is also especially focused on helping the recovery of native species of the river Segura as the Gypsy Beard (Luciobarbus Sclateri).

The Life + Segura Riverlink project, along with the Life + Ripisilvanatura project, has been an accolade to the work of the CHS to improve the environmental conditions of the river Segura in a very anthropized environment, such as the middle and low vegas.

The joint action in these areas of the basin organization and the Government of the Region of Murcia, which in the late 1990s and early in the century led to a general plan for the purification and reuse of wastewater, has made it possible for one of the most polluted rivers Of Europe to have imperceptible pollution levels in all its sections.
