Regeneration of the Doñana coastline at the Port of Sevilla

31 March 2022

The Port of Sevilla has recovered a 275-meter-long stretch of the right bank of its Guadalquivir River, where the Doñana National Park’s coastline is located. The area had been affected by erosion due to recent storms, high tides and flooding.

The regeneration of the Doñana’s beaches began in November 2021 and was achieved through the deposit of 62.000 m3 of sand extracted during maintenance dredging of the navigation channel. The initiative was part of a collaboration with the Coastal Demarcation of Andalusia-Atlantic with the support of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development of the Government of Andalusia.
