Island’s Biosphere Reserve bid


New regional councillor for the ecological transition, Isaura Navarro has lent her support to the bid to turn Tabarca island into a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Biosphere Reserves are ‘learning places for sustainable development’, according to UNESCO.
They include terrestrial, marine and coastal ecosystems.

This week she travelled to the island, which lies off Santa Pola.

Sra Navarro was joined by the Tabarca cultural association and they talked of ‘defending the environmental protection of the site’.

The councillor noted that the declaration would help with the preservation and promotion of Tabarca, which she described as an ‘enchanting’ place.
