ealing with the idea of environmental dissemination, Trenca has published two books on wildlife and habitats (specifically, on urban wildlife and wetlands wildlife), and a third one is currently in preparation, on the Pyrenees’ heritage values.
Fauna urbana de la plana de Lleida (Urban fauna of the plain of Lleida) is aimed at children from initial, middle and upper cycles of primary education, but also intended to all people that are specially interested in environmental education.
It shows us the biodiversity of urban environments and talks about the project for the reintroduction of the peregrine falcon in the city of Lleida.
Written by Teresa Baqueró, with photographs by Félix Fernández, J. R. Salas, José Luis Rodríguez, Jordi Clariana, Jordi Bas, Antonio Vázquez, Jaume Sañé, Albert Gispert, Vicente Ugidos and Albert Porté.
(You can find further information on the peregrine falcon reintroduction in the subsection Peregrine Falcon, within the section on other environmental actions in this website).
Fauna de les zones humides de Ponent (Wetlands wildlife of the Lleida province) is aimed to children aged 9 – 12 years and to any person of any age that are sensitive with regard to the knowledge and conservation of nature. It shows us the biodiversity of the wetlands of the Lleida province, both in the plain and in the mid and high mountain, remarking the role played by the wetlands.
Written by Teresa Baqueró and Vicente Ugidos, with illustrations by Daniel Olivera and Vicente Ugidos and photographs by Jaume Sañé, Félix Fernández, José Antonio Alba, Jordi Bas, Roger Eritja, Albert Gispert, J. R. Salas, Rubén Duro, Ferran Arumí and Francesc Puigdomenech.
Patrimonis, mirades al món pirinenc (in Catalan) and Patrimonios, miradas al mundo pirenaico (in Castilian) are the titles of the two versions of this book (in English should be Heritages, looks at the Pyrenees world), which is currently being prepared.
It is divided in eight sections: air, water, color, details, cold, light, action and looks.

In the same way that rivers water, trees, Romanesque churches or people are part of the heritage of the Pyrenees, bears are part as well. The brown bear is, maybe, the best indicator of the preservation of this heritage, of its balance. If ever the bear becomes extinct in the Pyrenees, we would be irresposible persons. We would have failed. But let us not be pessimistic. We would like this book to be an encouragement message, a reason as well, to achieve the conservation of this spot of the world called Pyrenees. So that, under any circumstances, no value ―not the villages, nor the forests, nor the Pantocrator, nor the bear― will become extinct.
From the book Heritages, looks at the Pyrenees world.
