FISHERMEN’S GUILD OF IBIZA IS LEADING AN INNOVATIVE PROJECT TO PROTECT THE MARINE RESERVES OF TAGOMAGO AND ES FREUS

In the course of a one-year period, the Fisherman’s Guild of Ibiza will be staging activities involving schools, fishermen/women and the general public in order to explain what marine reserves are, where they are located and how they are used, as well as their economic, social and environmental benefits. The project seeks to promote the connection between the reserves and the citizens; create a feeling of pride and belonging as the cornerstone for protecting these reserves.

The project is one of the winners of the first edition of the Fund for Improving Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) launched by Marilles in November 2018. The fund finances projects to improve MPAs in the Balearics. It is open to donations from other organisations.
