The marine area in front of the cliffs of Jaizkibel, in the Basque region – has finally been nominated as a special area of conservation. Oceana made this recommendation in 2010 and we’ve been working on getting the area – which has suffered from the impacts of coastal development, included into the Natura 2000 network.
The underwater life in Jaizkibel is remarkable and our photographers took some great shots when we studied the area it as part of our 2008 expedition. I hope you enjoy them!
