2014, Anniversary of main protected natural areas in Biscay

Conservation, a resource for Biscay’s sustainable development

María Uribe. Head of the Environment Department, Biscay Regional Council

We usually associate nature conservation with strict natural reserves where human activities are often excluded. The way in which work is done in the protected areas in Biscay is different. The aim is not just to create sanctuaries for wild life but to recognise that human beings are an integral part of nature: they share a cultural landscape.
