THE MINISTRY of Environment has agreed to give almost €2 million in funding to the Balearic Institute of Nature (Ibanat) to control and protect the Posidonia grasslands through 2021.

Ibanat will receive €485,000 annually, funding 15 boats around the islands, five for Mallorca and five for Formentera, the two islands with the largest natural protected sea-grass areas.

They will patrol for illegal activities, fishing and anchoring in the protected areas.
