A new deal was approved this week between the government and the Guardia Civil to increase monitoring and protection measures in heritage sites in the Balearics, especially the Cabrera national park something the marine conservation group Oceana considered “extremely positive.” The group has, over the years complained vehemently to the authorities to maximise the budget allocated to supervise the areas, mainly against illegal fishing, saying if it were to be used correctly, the area under supervision could be ten times bigger, without spending a single additional penny. “We have been pushing for this for years. This is an opportunity to correct previous mistakes by the authorities.” Oceana considered it vital to avoid further cuts in the budget and in staff members of the Cabrera National Park, adding that this was the main obstacle in the past for correctly monitoring the areas.
