AS Mallorca’s S’Albufera natural park celebrated its 30th anniversary, the GOB demands ‘more commitment’ and a ‘critical analysis’ of the park’s situation.

S’Albufera needs more than new logos

The park, which was the first protected natural area in the Balearic Islands, is a natural wetland between Can Picafort and Alcudia.

“Of course we must celebrate the 30th anniversary in the protection of s’Albufera de Mallorca, but more than with photos, new logos and public activities,” the Balearic environmental group said in a statement.

“From the GOB we urge the government to commemorate it with the approval and urgent development of an improvement strategy, with the necessary planning and availability of resources, to remove the park from the situation of serious environmental crisis that is suffering,” they continued.

“Facing these challenges with enthusiasm is very good, but will only be resolved with commitment, decisiveness, budgeting and competence, aspects that unfortunately we have to say that we do not observe adequately,” criticised the GOB.
