El Hito


El Hito lagoon is a 995 ha Nature Reserve and RAMSAR wetland located within a Natura 2000 site in Cuenca, Spain. El Hito is home to many threatened migratory bird species such as little Bustard, Black-bellied sandgrouse, and Dupont’s lark. It is also the second most visited site for migratory cranes on the Iberian Peninsula which make a key biodiversity hotspot on the Iberian plateau. This project is aiming to incentivise the adoption of sustainable farming practices within the project area alongside the creation of new, and expansion of existing, EU priority habitats to protect and increase the biodiversity of this incredibly important European bird site.
