3 national parks to volunteer in Spain

Thinking about including some volunteering in your educational or performance trip to Spain

On a trip to Spain you can never miss a visit to any of the national parks we have in our country. If, in addition, we do it in the form of volunteering, the experience is much more rewarding.

We have chosen three very different parks that are worth a visit and that offer environmental volunteer programs.

Doñana (Andalucia)

Doñana National Park is a mosaic of ecosystems that harbor a unique biodiversity in Europe. The marshland stands out above all, of extraordinary importance as a passage, breeding and wintering place for thousands of European and African birds. The Park is home to unique species in serious danger of extinction, such as the Iberian imperial eagle and the Iberian lynx.
Doñana is the confluence of a set of ecosystems (beach, dunes, preserves, marshes…) that give this Park a unique personality.

Aigüestortes (Cataluña)

Its main sign of identity corresponds to the more than 200 lakes or ponds, the impressive cliffs of “Els Encantats” and its characteristic high mountain meanders (the aigüestortes). It is a true paradise for nature lovers: lakes, streams, waterfalls, peat bogs, rocky cliffs, rugged peaks and lush forests of black pine, spruce, Scots pine, birch and beech, are home to a multitude of interesting plants and fascinating animals of alpine or boreal origin.

Atlantic Islands (Galicia)

From the Arousa estuary to the Vigo estuary, these islands are chained together, emerging from the ocean and beautifying the seascape with the magic of their cliffs. In its entrails, at the bottom of the sea, are kept the most precious ecological riches of this National Park, guarded by the cannons of the old ships sunk here. It is undoubtedly a place to discover the mysteries and legends of the Atlantic. It represents natural systems linked to coastal areas and continental shelf of the Eurosiberian Region. The cliffs, scrublands, dunes and beaches, as well as the different seabeds (rock, sand, shell…) create a great mosaic of ecosystems on these islands and the waters surrounding them.
This diversity of scenarios accommodates a large number of species: more than 200 types of algae among which many fish and mollusks shelter and breed, seabirds that nest on the ledges of the cliffs and fish in the shallow waters, plants surprisingly adapted to live among the sands of the dunes or in the narrow crevices of the cliffs… The conservation of these natural values is a challenge in which we must all participate.
