The wetlands and coastal lagoons are ecosystems that lodge environments and species of high ecological interest. In spite of this, pressure by human activity in their surroundings has caused a drastic reduction in their extension and in the quality of their waters.

The Baix Ter wetlands are a system of humid areas resulting from the interaction of the sea with the Ter and Daró rivers. These are located on the coastal strip known as beaches of Pals and Estartit; a heavily populated and tourist area and as a consequence the wetlands are very fragmented. With the purpose of recovering their ecological state and value, a restoration and recovery program has begun. Within it, two Life projects financed by the EU (50%) are framed.




Other LIFE projects about Emys orbicularis and amphibians:
