The Network of Natural Spaces of the Balearic Islands
The Balearic Islands have a natural heritage and biodiversity of great value, which must be conserved and known in order to determine the management and protection needs to ensure their future. Protected natural spaces are key to guaranteeing the conservation of this intangible heritage.

The Network of Protected Natural Areas of the Balearic Islands comprises 11 natural areas declared between 1988 and 2017, with different protection figures: a national park (Arxipèlag de Cabrera), 7 natural parks (s’Albufera de Mallorca, Mondragó, s’Albufera des Grau, Sa Dragonera, Levant Peninsula, ses Salines d’Eivissa and Formentera, es Trenc-Salobrar de Campos), 2 nature reserves (s’Albufereta, Es Vedrà, es Vedranell and the islets of Ponent), and a natural site (Serra de Tramuntana).

Within the network, a large part of the terrestrial and marine ecosystems present in our Islands are represented. The area of ​​protected territory is 76,076.06 hectares, 15.31% of the territorial scope of the Autonomous Community, and 108,716 hectares of marine surface.

This website was born with the aim of disseminating and sharing the natural and cultural values ​​of these spaces. The more people know about what our protected natural spaces contain, the more awareness will be created about the need to conserve them, as well as the values ​​that are within our reach and we can know without leaving our islands.
