Field station and labs

The Doñana Biological Reserve offers a range of facilities for scientific research, including:

Housing: housing facilities include four different houses in the Reserve, making a total of 30 slots available. Each house counts with two-or three-bed rooms; fully stocked kitchens, allowing visitors to bring and prepare their own food; and a common room. You can also order your food from a catering service and collect it at the RBD central premises shortly before lunch time.

Field laboratories: the ICTS-RBD counts with two field laboratories, offering space and equipment for sample processing and simple analyses. The equipment available includes stereoscopes, precision scales, drying ovens, fridges and freezers. More complex analyses can be undertaken at EBD’s headquarters in Sevilla, which counts with a broad array of fully-equipped laboratories.

Wi-Fi connectivity at all facilities and across the whole reserve, allowing for the intercommunication of equipment deployed in the field.

Authorized research projects can request access and accomodation at the Reserve using this application (in Spanish). For other requests, register on our portal. To use other Reserve's facilities read carefully our rules of use.
