Caring for our shared paradise, where past and future converge
Islands are fragile ecosystems, exceptionally vulnerable to changes in the environment. The isolation that comes from being surrounded by the sea turns them into genuine storehouses of biodiversity where it is common to find – like random jewels of evolution – endemic life forms of great ecological value. The natural treasures of Ibiza and the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu, those unique species that inhabit our fields and seafloor, are part of our identity as a region and a destination – a legacy of incalculable value which we have all inherited, residents and visitors alike, and of which we are merely temporary custodians. It is for this reason that our commitment to environment and sustainability comprises one of the pillars of Santa Eulària’s touristic and general policymaking, together with quality of life for its residents and visitors. Because, paradises must be cared for if they are to continue being the havens we all love.
