Restoration of fossil deposits (Paleontology). The ichnological outcrops of Igea extend over a wide area, being the most interesting for its scientific value: "La Ca ada", "Las Navas", "Santa Ana", "la Era del Peladillo" and "La Torre". The icnites of these deposits are mostly tridactyls, belonging to biped dinosaurs both theropod (carnivorous) and ornithopod (herbivorous). In addition, in the site of "La Era del Peladillo" they emphasize numerous ichnites attributed to two herds of dinosaurs, one of sauropods quadruped and another one of ornithopod bidactyl, all herbivorous.Work camp in the ichnological outcrops site will be developed, four hours from Monday to Friday, in the morning from 8,00 to 12,00, to avoid the hotter hours at the cost of getting up early.

Injuve, an Autonomous Department of the Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality, has, for some years now, been promoting specific programmes which are aimed at increasing and favouring different travel possibilities for young people. This enables those under 30 years of age to become aware of other realities, visit other places and have access to other cultures.
Included among these programmes is one known as International Voluntary Service (SVI), which deals only with workcamps. These are aimed at youth between 18 and 26 years old and their main objectives are:
– To encourage conduct that will favour the exchange of ideas and young peopleâ€™s global development. This is achieved by volunteering and from the contributions made by youth from their own experience. This strengthens intercultural learning processes, personal development and the reinforcement of democratic values.
– To integrate experiences, personal knowledge and the global development of youth in the carrying out of an activity, within the framework of voluntary service.
The Youth Institute co-ordinates the exchange of places for young Spaniards wanting to volunteer in foreign workcamps and foreigners wanting to volunteer in Spanish workcamps. The Spanish workcamps are managed by the Autonomous Regions.
