About us

IbizaPreservation is a not-for-profit foundation that works to preserve and regenerate the natural resources of Ibiza and Formentera and promotes sustainable initiatives on the islands.

In order to achieve this, we support, finance and promote environmental projects that aim to protect and restore our land and sea.

  • Develop initiatives and opportunities to seek financial support from private and public institutions.
  • In coordination with our communication department, help develop advertising and information materials aimed at attracting the attention of current and potential donors.
  • Train and support any volunteers in their charge so that they properly perform their functions

  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to develop relationships with a wide variety of donors.
  • Experience of managing donors with the help of donor relationship management systems is a plus.

  • A wide network of personal and professional contacts in the communities of Ibiza and Formentera.
  • Resident on the island of Ibiza with the legal right to work in Spain.
