He will try to answer questions such as why are now leaving Audouin’s gulls?, why are shearwaters not breeding in our coastline?, what is happening with our habitats 30 years after the first natural parks?
There will permanently also be an exhibition about Natural Parks Net in the observatory building at MónNatura Delta.
Finally, David Bigas, expert ornithologist from Delta de l’Ebre Natural Park, will talk about Ebro Delta birds’ pattern list. This talk will take place on Sunday, being the last scheduled by the Festival.
