This new permanent exhibition at the Casa de la Ciencia Museum, takes the form of an interactive corner where visitors of all ages can understand what a Singular Scientific-Technical Infrastructure (ICTS) is; and knowing especially the Biological Reserve of Doñana (RBD), one of the twenty-nine ICTS that the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) manages throughout Spain.

A set of four virtual reality glasses represent the main claim of the sample. Through them, users of all ages, even the youngest, can immerse themselves in a 360-degree video and travel at full speed along the shore of the beach on the roof of the mythical Land Rover of the park; see lynx specimens less than a centimeter away or walk through the marshes, avoiding some of the emblematic animal species that inhabit it.

The public can also enjoy four 10-inch digital frames with loop images of the Biological Reserve. Representative snapshots of the different ecosystems (coastal waters, beaches, dunes and corrals, marshes, preserves, phreatic lagoons and vera) and their associated species have been selected. The CSIC created the RBD in 1964, which is currently managed by the Doñana Biological Station (EBD) and which is considered an ICTS since 2006. It is located in the heart of the Doñana Natural Area and occupies the 10th percent of the entire protected area, considered the most important wetland in Spain and the third in Europe, as well as the largest Ecological Reserve on the continent.
