FGN has always regarded wetlands and their restoration and conservation as a priority. Aware of the endangered situation of these key ecosystems, FGN took some early steps toward the restoration of the lagoon at La Nava (Palencia), currently a Ramsar wetland.

FGN has worked at over 100 Spanish wetlands, and eight more in other countries, with a total surface area of 14,000 ha. Fundación Global Nature has cooperated with international projects in Colombia, the Philippines, Guatemala, Mozambique, Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Senegal and Sri Lanka.

Through the Living Lakes Network (61 wetlands) the Fundación has cooperated with 26 partners in 15 countries to exchange knowledge on wetlands.

To date, FGN has participated in 25 different  LIFE Projects, all awarded by the European Commission, co-funded with over €25m.

Among the projects conducted by Fundación Global Nature relating to the conservation of wetlands we may mention the following:

  • Restoration of albardine scrub and saline steppes in La Mancha Húmeda, España (LIFE10 NAT/E/000563)
  • Sustainable husbandry of Wetlands and Shallow Lakes (LIFE00 ENV/D/000351)
  • Canal de Castilla (LIFE99 NAT/E/6339)
  • Conservation of the aquatic warbler in the ZEPA Nava-Campos” (LIFE02 NAT/E/8616).
  • Steppes of La Mancha LIFE15/NAT/ES000734
