Concerning LIBERA Project, SEO/Birdlife has designed a new project, LIBERA Science, to discover the impact of litter on Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs by its initials in Spanish). From the 469 IBAs identified in Spain, we have selected 140 taking into account the seven most representative habitats aiming to take samples of the water, soil and wild animals’ feces to identify the presence of polluting elements resulting from residues and analyze their impact on nature. With this new project, we want to analyze and quantify the presence of polluting products derived from littering. The samples will be analyzed by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) researchers, the most significant public organism dedicated to research in Spain. We will update our data as results come in.
