Spain grants personhood status to threatened lagoon

Spain granted personhood status Wednesday to a large saltwater lagoon to give its threatened ecosystem better protection, the first time such a measure has been taken in Europe.

The initiative to grant the status to the Mar Menor—one of Europe's largest saltwater lagoons—was debated in parliament after campaigners collected over 500,000 signatures backing it.

It now becomes law after Spain's Senate, the upper house of parliament, voted in favour of the proposal, with only far-right party Vox opposing it.

This will allow the rights of the lagoon located in southeastern Spain to be defended in court, as though it were a person or business.
