The policies of conservation of Nature and socio-economic development at Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas Mountains.- In these mountain areas several measures have been applied by Government for more than a century which aimed to preserve their natural values. The regulation of several state forests at the end of XIXth century was not nevertheless reinforced when the protection of natural parks policy started, and a new period of intensive exploitation of their wood reserves happened after the Civil War. In 1986 a natural park was established in this region, although several steps had been carried out that provided the protection of its fauna in the previous decades, like the creation of National Boundary of Hunting or the ordination of fishing.
