Area of wetland to be protected

ECOLOGICAL HERITAGE: A horse in s’Albufera natural reserve.

THE Balearic Environmental Association (GOB), which has been at the forefront of efforts to protect the islands’ ecological heritage, will take on a 29 hectare patch of wetland under an agreement between the Balearic government and power company Endesa, which currently owns the land. 

Part of the environmental reserve in s’Albufera on the north-east coast, the land will be looked after by the group for at least four years as they perform research on the area, highly popular with birdwatchers from across Europe. 

The government has emphasised the inclusive and innovative nature of the land sharing agreement which unusually sees political, business and activist groups joining forces.
