Work of Everyone

The conservation of the natural heritage of the Park through appropriate management decisions is a priority objective. The actions carried out in it are aimed at preserving its natural values ​​and the processes that sustain them. Any action to be carried out must be compatible with its permanence.

In the execution of conservation actions, a series of principles are taken into account and we are going to focus on:

  • Application of the best available knowledge and the principle of prevention.
  • Coordination and collaboration with the Administrations present in the Park area.
  • Action with minimum interference towards natural processes.
  • Preservation of the landscape, water and air quality.

This is everyone’s job, and of course, the volunteers of our volunteer camp. But we will always invite you to want to know more…much more…

Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park

The National Maritime Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia is the first and only space of this category in the autonomous community of Galicia and the second in the Spanish state of a maritime-terrestrial character, together with the Cabrera Archipelago in the Balearic Islands.

These islands were declared a National Park in 2002 as one of the best examples of the ecosystems of the Spanish Atlantic seabed and coasts.

The National Park includes the archipelagos of Cortegada, Sálvora, Ons and Cíes and the maritime space that surrounds them, this marine strip constituting 86% of the total protected surface, which gives us a clear idea of ​​the importance of the marine environment in this protected space.

In its waters we can find various types of seabeds that house ecosystems of great value, but susceptible to being altered and destroyed if the activities carried out in this maritime space, such as navigation, anchoring of boats or diving, are not adequately regulated.

Human activities are also regulated on land, including camping on islands.


  • Lighting any type of fire, bonfire or similar.
  • Camping outside the places designated for that purpose.
  • Throwing or depositing any type of garbage or solid or liquid waste.
  • Accessing areas marked as not accessible to the public.
  • Disturbing, injuring, capturing or killing wild animals.
  • Carrying out any activity that destroys, damages or disturbs the unique natural elements of the area.
  • Uprooting, cutting or damaging vegetation.
  • Using megaphones, noise or loudspeakers that may disturb the natural tranquility of the place.
  • Introducing non-native animal or plant species.
  • Flying drones, kites or any other type of flying device without the express authorization of the National Park.
  • Music on boats within the limits of the Park.


Take care of our National Park...
