Galicia,a treasure!

In the last decades the Galician coast has been under great pressure that threatens to destroy its values and natural wealth. Uncontrolled discharges, aggressive urban planning, the overexploitation of resources, the destruction of habitats… are endangering the impressive biological wealth that our coasts harbor. Despite this, the Galician coast has a very outstanding natural interest, with many coastal and marine areas of high ecological value that are worth protecting in a special way. 28 coastal natural spaces were subject to legal protection, some are well known as the Parque Nacional Marítimo Terrestre das Illas Atlánticas, or the Costa da Morte

To publicize the natural and cultural values of our coast so that the participants adopt positive attitudes and behaviors towards their conservation and sustainable use.

1.- Analyze the environmental problems of the Galician coast.2.- Be aware of the natural and cultural values that are hidden on our coast.3.- Promote caring for the environment through a more respectful and sustainable relationship.

TREASURES OF THE GALICIAN COAST

The Galician coast is a wonderful ecological treasure. The richness of the estuary is due to the phenomenon of "outcrop" or oceanic tides. This phenomenon occurs in spring and summer. Deep waters, rich in nutrients, replace surface waters that are blown out to sea by north winds. This explains why the Galician coast is an unbeatable habitat for shellfish. Fishing landed in Galicia accounts for 60% of the total in Spain

The Galician coastline stretches for 1,498 km. Galicia has more than 700 beaches of fine white sand, as well as endless coves.Carnota beach is the longest, with more than 12 km. The landscape is always surprising in the 12 Galician estuaries

SEA TREASURES vsSEA DISASTERS

The Galician coast has experienced several ecological disasters. The most terrible was the sinking of the Prestige tanker.Although we were not yet born, this misfortune lives on in the minds of our parents and grandparents.

63,000 tons of oil were spilled and 2,980km of Spanish, Portuguese and French coastline were contaminated.The fishing and shellfish sector of Galicia recorded losses of more than 22 million euros. The environmental damage was incalculable with hundreds of dead seabirds.

The Prestige "oil spill",an environmental catastrophe

WHAT HAPPENED?

On November 13, 2002, a monohull oil tanker launched a call for help, it was a few kilometers from the Finisterre coast with significant damage to the ship's structure and in the middle of a great storm.

The Prestige's journey through the Atlantic Ocean, awaiting a response from the Spanish, Portuguese and French governments, lasted six days. On November 19 the ship could not hold out any longer and broke in two, spilling the fuel over the ocean and starting a great ecological crisis.

Prestige's journey

WHAT CONSEQUENCES DID THIS ECOLOGICAL DISASTER HAVE?

63,000 tons of oil were scattered along the coasts, with Galicia taking the worst of it. 1137 beaches covered with oil what was called "the black tide

WHAT CONSEQUENCES DID THIS ECOLOGICAL DISASTER HAVE?

Hundreds of thousands of marine animals and birds died.

WHAT DO WE HIGHLIGHT?

A tide of solidarity.Thousands of volunteers striving to bring the beaches back to life.

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

Dead marine animals and birds, as well as the images of the Galician coasts covered in black, are kept in the collective memory.The environmental consequences of the spill are still visible on many beaches.The Prestige is still sunk several miles offshore, with oil tanks inside.Could this disaster happen again?Is the Spanish government prepared to face an ecological disaster of similar magnitudes?Could the Galician coast once again bear such damage?

WE ASK OURSELVES
