An estimated 30% of Spanish territory, about 15 million hectares and nearly 2,000 natural areas of important ecological value, are part of the Natura 2000, an European network aiming to ensure biodiversity conservation.
Natura 2000 provides to the European citizens vital services, such as carbon storage, water quality maintenance and extreme weather events protection. These services are valued for 200 to 300 billion euros per year, according to the European Commission.
Although more than 80% of Spanish population live in or near one of these sites, only 3% knows what it is and how we can take advantage of its benefits and help in its conservation.
It is time to change this figures!
It is time to be more, and more active!
