Discover Your Marine Protected Area Sa Dragonera

The project 

Save The Med works towards the creation of an efficient network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), including marine reserves. We believe that involvement of local communities is key to achieving lasting marine protection and are launching a new local leadership project which aims to engage local communities in the care and protection of their local MPA. With the support of Marilles Foundation, this pilot project will be implemented in the Sa Dragonera 2019/2020. 

Photo collaboration - Because we can achieve more by working together!

To launch this new project, we invite you all to join a unique 'PhotoCollab' focusing on the Sa Dragonera marine reserve. This photographic collaboration, contrary to a competition,  encourages people to join forces and together participate in the active care for their marine reserve.

The photo collaboration will reveal Sa Dragonera marine reserve’s fascinating life through the creation and exhibition of a big collage of photos, sent in by the participants and composed by the local artist Emma Glinski. In addition, your photo will feature in the marine reserve’s species database, showcasing Sa Dragonera’s richness and biodiversity.

Sa Dragonera's marine environment

Freu de Sa Dragonera marine reserve

The marine reserve Freu de Sa Dragonera is one of the Balearic's eleven marine reserves and was established in October 2016. This will enable the continuous regeneration of habitat of a great variety of flora and fauna. The marine reserve borders with the Natural Parc of the Island Sa Dragonera and offers countless landscapes and fascinating subjects for passionate photographers. 

Extension of the marine reserve

During 2019 the marine reserve will be expanded by 457 hectares to include the external waters of Sa Dragonera, allowing additional regeneration potential for marine life in the area.
