GOAL +1,500 TREES
The goal for the Doñana project is to reforest to recover the forest mass and biodiversity of three of the most emblematic ecosystems of this natural treasure affected by the 2017 fire: the dunes, the lagoon, and the Mediterranean forest.
We will plant different indigenous species, such as the juniper, the cork oak, the olive, or other dune shrubs, in collaboration with the Council of Andalusia, Doñana National Park, and the Spanish Ornithological Society, organizations whose efforts we will join together with hundreds of volunteers and friends.
Doñana National Park is one of the most spectacular and diverse areas of Andalusia and Spain. Within the park, we may find several completely different ecosystems that coexist in total harmony. There are dunes in the areas closest to the sea, as well as a lagoon ecosystem, and the Mediterranean forest.
This wild biodiversity allows us to see more than 300 different bird species throughout the year and makes it the best habitat for the Iberian lynx.
DESERTIZATION AND BIODIVERSITY
In addition to the progressive deterioration of the underground aquifers, Doñana is also suffering the effects of climate change, which together, are causing the unstoppable advance of desertization, a phenomenon that has already affected over 30% of Spain.
These environmental problems were compounded by a devastating fire in June 2017 that laid waste to 8,500 hectares. After the fire, there has been a great loss of biodiversity and Doñana's ecosystems need us to give them a hand.
YOUR TREE AND YOUR PHOTO
FEBRUARY - MARCH 2020
The next reforestation in Doñana will take place in February 2020, with the invaluable help of hundreds of neighbors and volunteers. We will plant the trees of all the customers who have chosen to help Doñana recover the biodiversity it lost in the great fire and, together with our remaining projects, fight climate change.
We will send the photo of your tree, with the name you chose at checkout, in early March to the e-mail you provided.
