 GREEN BAY RING 

This initiative of the Nature and Man Foundation also serves as a guide to highlight other green areas that, even though they belong to urban areas, in some cases have a relevant ecological value and that deserve their conservation and monitoring.

There are specifically ten natural reserves such as the Peñas Negras holm oak grove, the Pozón de la Dolores, the Engoa Marshes, etc.
