2019: DOÑANA NATIONAL PARK CELEBRATES ITS ANNIVERSARY

Huelva (Spain) / On October 16, 1969 the decree of the Government was published, creating the Doñana National Park, so this year marks the 50th anniversary of this iconic space, a date which will be celebrated from multiple perspectives.

Thus, it’s included in the Annual Works Plan for the Doñana Natural Area (END) for this 2019, to which EFE has had access, in which, although no specific activities are required -which will be made public throughout the year. It’s pointed out that this event “deserves special attention and will focus part of space management”.

This celebration, they indicate from the END, will try to take a tour through these 50 years of history, by the values of Doñana, the people who contributed to its development and the inhabitants of this territory.

This celebration is also proposed as a collective project and participated in which society in general and the actors involved in its daily management are represented in the actions.

Currently, Doñana is a Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site and, together with Sierra Nevada, it’s among the 25 best protected and conserved areas in the world, according to the Green List of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

The celebration is not unrelated to the claims of groups and associations working for the defence of this space, such as Ecologistas en Acción, which believes “the main challenge is to shield once and for all Doñana against all kinds of threats”, as indicated by his spokesman in the area Juan Romero.

Something that goes through “several unavoidable issues”, among which are the definitive cancellation of the industrial project of storing natural gas in the subsoil, to avoid the possible threats of discharges such as hydrocarbons and those of mining operations, to guarantee the maintenance of the quality of the waters and guarantee the connectivity of Doñana.

Juanjo Carmona, from WWF, considers water management a short-term threat and climate change as one that he will have to face in the medium and long term, while he understands that to guarantee the future of Doñana it is necessary ” achieve a balance between the interior and exterior of the park”.
