++ Environmental protection: Will there soon be a new marine protected area on Mallorca? (October 27, 2023) ++

Maybe Mallorca will soon get a new marine protected area. It is to be built on the coast of the Serra de Tramuntana. However, that still depends on whether the socialists and the left-wing Sumar party agree to form a government. This is reported by the “Mallorca Zeitung”.

The plan envisages the creation of a marine protected area of ​​around 5,000 hectares between Ses Puntes in Sóller and Morro d’en Llobera in Escora, near Sa Calobra. In some cases, fishing should be completely banned here.

The project in the area is part of plans defined to “protect and restore the environment”. Regions that are severely affected by climate change are particularly affected . The origin of the plans goes back to 2008.

There are currently two marine protected areas in Mallorca, one in the Parc Natural de Llevant and the other around the island of Sa Dragonera.
