Landscapes endangered by sprawl

A new book of photography explores the Països Catalans (Catalan territories) most vulnerable natural spaces. Published by Caixa Sabadell, Mirades (Views), covers three natural areas --mostly along the coast-- which, despite their importance to the ecology of the area, are threatened by urban expansion and the effects of climate change.
The 12 areas covered include the Catalan Pyrenees (Upper Pyrenees and Vall d'Aran) and the Vall d'Àrreu (Pallars Sobirà), the Albera mountain range (Upper Empordà), Vallfongona de Ripollès, El Vallès, les Garrigues, els Muntanyans and punta de la Móra (Tarragona), the delta de l'Ebre, the Albufera de València, the Mariola mountain range (vall d'Albaida), Cala d'Hort (Eivissa) and Muleta (Mallorca). (Full story in printed edition).
