Spain announces a 1.4 billion-euro deal to help protect the prized Doñana wetland from drying up

National and regional authorities in Spain signed an agreement Monday to invest 1.4 billion euros ($1.5 billion) in areas around the treasured national park of Doñana 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.

              Spain's commitment to addressing the environmental challenges in the Doñana region is particularly timely as climate change and unsustainable practices pose threats to sensitive ecosystems worldwide.

                This is great news for the Doñana wetland in Spain. The announcement of a 1.4 billion-euro deal to protect the wetland from drying up shows a commitment to preserving this prized natural treasure. Wetlands are crucial ecosystems that provide habitat for numerous plant and animal species, as well as important services such as water filtration and flood control.
