Project:

One of the most degraded wetlands in Mallorca today is “s’Estany des Ponts”, located in Alcúdia. For this reason, and given the ecological importance of wetlands, Mallorca Preservation collaborates with WWF to restore life and fauna to this area.

“Wetlands are not only rich in biodiversity, but also around a billion people depend on these habitats. Not to mention the important services they play in flood protection and climate change mitigation. If we want to build a sustainable future for our planet, the protection of wetlands has to be at the core” (Patricia Zurita, chief executive of BirdLife).
