Estación Biológica de Doñana

The Biological Station of Doñana is a public research institute under the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), within the area of Natural Resources. Its objective is the research, conservation and diffusion of the biological, atmospheric, meteorological, limnological and geomorphological heritage of the Park of Doñana. Its Departments are Evolutionary ecology, Integrative ecology, Ethology and Conservation of Biodiversity, Biology of Conservation, Ecology of Wetlands. It has its headquarters in a central building on the Isla de la Cartuja in Seville and two field stations, the ICTS of the Doñana Park in Almonte , Huelva province , and another, with the name of Roblehondo Field Station, in the park of Sierra de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas , in the province of Jaén Biologist Jose Antonio Valverde promoted conservation Doñana. In 1969 the Biological Reserve of Doñana was instituted as a national park and in 1994 the Biological Reserve of Doñana was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In 2006 the Ministry of Education and Science gives the title of Unique Scientific and Technological Infrastructure (ICTS) to the Biological Station, Which gives it the opportunity to improve its facilities and better disseminate its research at an international level. From 1964 was located the Sevillian headquarters of the Station in a chalet of the district of Heliópolis . In 1984 he moved to the Peru Pavilion of the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929 and in the spring of 2007 moved to a new building on the Cartuja Island of Seville. The Pavilion of Peru would remain as an exhibition space of the CSIC called House of Science. In 2002, partly with funds from the Doñana Biological Station, the Museum of the Marine World in the Dunar Park of Matalascañas could be created as a Museum of Natural History centered on ocean life. However, due to lack of funding from the Government of Andalusia , the Museum had to close in 2012. The CSIC announced that it would try to recover the property by giving it a wider use, in relation to the ecological value of Doñana. In September 2015, the director Juan José Negro was dismissed by the president of the CSIC, Manuel Lora-Tamayo . Black himself, as well as Ecologists in Action, interpreted the cessation as a political reprisal. Other environmental organizations such as SEO and WWF in Andalusia stated that they were surprised by the dismissal and worried that with the change of direction the positions by the EBD would not be maintained.
