MALLORCA – TUI will plant 50,000 trees in the Parque Natural Península de Llevant, reaffirming Mallorca’s status as a top Spanish destination.
The company has joined forces with the regional Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and the Environment to launch this reforestation effort in the island’s northeastern nature reserve. Officials and community leaders gathered last Wednesday to kick off the initiative.
The reforestation drive by TUI in Mallorca
Between 2009 and 2015, TUI played a key role in reforesting local lands, planting 60,000 trees in Albarca, es Verger, and s’Alquería. Their commitment continues with a new batch of 50,000 trees that will strengthen and expand the forest to the Son Real estate.
An all-encompassing environmental plan
The initiative is not just about tree-planting. It strategically introduces native species like pine, holm oak, and wild olive. The plan also incorporates fire prevention tactics, environmental education programs, and upgrades to walking paths.
Advancing beyond conservation
TUI’s efforts aim to boost biodiversity and protect the area’s wildlife. The project will also create jobs in nature conservation and sustainable tourism, benefiting local communities.
The Parc Natural de Llevant’s touristic importance
For northern Mallorca’s tourism, the Parc Natural de Llevant is a treasure. “This project exemplifies responsible tourism,” says a TUI spokesperson. “We strive for a balance between conservation and business. Protecting our natural spaces is more than a responsibility; it’s a commitment we make.”
