Marilles Foundation, together with the Balearic Center for Applied Biology (CBBA) and Ecoacsa, are leading an innovative project to estimate the marine natural capital of the Cala Rajada Marine Reserve in Northeast Mallorca. Studies of this kind have been done in some areas around the world, but this is the first one of these characteristics applied to the Spanish marine environment. The study is part of an EU Interreg Med project which aims to improve the management of marine protected areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean. It has a total budget of 60,000 Euro and first results are expected for April 2021.
