The respective secretaries of tourism and environment were on hand as the Wednesday evening gala got under way in Palma's Palau de Congressos, part of the celebrations for World Tourism Day.

Save Posidonia Project, a joint effort between the Formentera Council and the island's advisory entity on tourism, the Patronat de Turisme, was honoured as the “best sustainable tourism initiative”. “As the year of sustainable tourism,” secretary Ferrer pointed out, “2017 has been about bringing people on board about the critical role posidonia plays and raising money to fund conservation”.

Ferrer said she was “thrilled” to receive recognition “for the steps we're taking to make sure Formentera is walking the talk in terms of sustainability and responsible use of natural resources”.
