Spain to invest huge sum to keep wetland-dependent, WH-listed Donaña NP from drying up

Authorities in Spain signed an agreement Monday to invest €1.4 billion in areas around the Doñana national park, in a bid to stop the park from drying up.

Ecological Transition Minister Teresa Ribera said the plan was aimed at encouraging farmers to stop cultivating crops that rely heavily on water from underground aquifers that have been overexploited in recent years, damaging one of Europe’s largest wetlands.
