THE EBRO DELTA NATURAL PARK, A RECOGNISED TREASURE
For many years, “Terres de l’Ebre” and the Ebro Delta have been catalogued as a singular and natural territory.
In 1962 it was named as an area of international importance with the highest category, within the classification of Euro-African wetlands of international interest elaborated by Bureau Mar. In addition, in 1984 it was declared an area of European importance by the European Council for its salty vegetation, and three years later, the European Union declared it a Special Protection Area for Birds. It was also added to the Ramsar Convention and wetlands in 1993, and obtained the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in 2007.
In 2013, for example, it was declared a Natural Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO thanks to its natural and landscape richness. One of the main reasons for this is the fantastic representation in Mediterranean ecosystems.
