Habitats and species

main working area

We actively work on the ground, through land stewardship agreements, stakeholders involvement and monitoring key indicators

Wetlands are the most productive habitats on the planet and also the most threatened. The restoration and management of wetlands is one of our main lines of action. Our work has been recognized with several prizes, such as the Ramsar Convention Award for Wetland Wise Use or the Award of the BBVA Foundation for the Conservation of Biodiversity in Spain.

We actively work on the ground to protect habitats and species, some of them are endangered species like the aquatic warbler, or steppe birds like the Great bustard and the Little bustard.  We consider that long-term conservation requires combining technical expertise when working on the ground and the creation of alliances with all involved stakeholders. To this end, our work on other fields, like the promotion of sustainability in the agrifood sector, is always linked to our commitment to nature conservation.


We have helped to protect more than 14.000 hectares in more than 100 wetlands. Wetlands are one of the most important ecosystems for safeguarding biodiversity.


Spain is home to the last and most important populations of European steppe birds. We work with more than 60 farmers in more than 15.000 hectares to ensure their conservation 

Coastal areas

The Spanish coastal areas are not just recreational areas but unique habitats for a variety of plants and animals. Our coastlines support a large number of socioeconomic interests.


To assess the conservation status of habitats and species is a basic requirement to achieve our goal. Research, development and innovation help us to collect data and to monitor our results.
