The Gibraltar Nature Cameras

The Department of the Environment, Heritage & Climate Change launched the Gibraltar Nature Cameras project in 2015 with the installation of an underwater camera in the Rosia ‘no take/no fishing zone’ (known locally as the Seven Sisters). It provides users with an insight into Gibraltar’s underwater environment’s flora and fauna as well as vital scientific data on fish species richness and abundance. The camera also provides unprecedented data on the effects of declaring a ‘no take/no fishing zone’. This live underwater camera is the first of its kind in Europe, providing a real time video link to Gibraltar’s rich and diverse underwater environment. 

The second phase of the project involved the installation of two live-feed cameras showing the nests of one of Gibraltar’s most well-known visiting birds, the Pallid Swift. 

The initiative is part of the Department’s wider environmental education programme, aiming to increase knowledge of and protect both our natural and urban environments.

Swift Cameras

In order to increase awareness of swifts in Gibraltar, we have installed four cameras in different locations which show the daily lives of these amazing birds.
