The Conservation of the Mediterranean Island Wetlands project (MedIsWet) is a joined effort of 13 partners across 9 Mediterranean countries: Turkey, Croatia, Malta, Italy, Spain, Tunisia, France, Cyprus and Greece. The MedIsWet project started in 2017 and it is coordinated by WWF Greece. MedIsWet works in four pillars: documentation, dissemination of knowledge, policy and advocacy – national and regional. Aiming to spread our gained knowledge and to achieve a country based and a Pan-Mediterranean island wetland protection, we have developed a database for each country. MedIsWet project is funded by MAVA foundation. More information can be found here.
All 9 national Island wetland databases across the Mediterranean region have the same structure and they are comparable and host – compatible. Here you will find:
a searchable database of the island wetlands of Spain which holds all inventory data (including: wetland information, protection statuses, wetland values, human activities, impacts, habitat types, species and references).
exportable wetland data (of the complete dataset or parts of it)
geo-referenced data on wetland locations and their delineation
summarised statistics
Navigation options
The user can navigate in the Island wetlands of Spain database through the:
search by option (search by: island, municipality or wetland) with autocomplete typing
explore by filters or
by using a combination of the above.
Only one search by option can be performed per search while multiple filters can be applied simultaneously, as long as there are data that correspond to the selected criteria. The wetlands which correspond to these criteria will be shown on a list and on a map (currently not operational). If a wetland gets selected the user will be transferred to the wetland page where all available inventory data along with a wetland map and images are displayed.
