The idea for the Individual Fog Water Collectors (IFWC) came from field observations at other reforestation sites where condensation was registered on the metal mesh used as protection against herbivores.

In order to improve collection capabilities, Life Nieblas' team has equipped such collectors with an extra layer of PE mosquito mesh which is currently used on traditional Fog Water Collectors (FWC).

Finally last week and after a long drought (coupled with heatwaves) more humid currents reached the islands leaving behind images such as the ones we can enjoy here.
