Torrevieja Town Hall as started an environmental education campaign to teach people about their surroundings and learn to care for their beaches.
Every day until August 25th, there will be a tent with the banner, “Cuidemos nuestras playas ¡Seamos Superhéroes!” (Care for our beaches ¡Let’s be superheroes!) that is open from 9am-3pm. It will be located at Playa de Los Náufragos on Friday, August 21st, on the south of La Mata on Saturday the 22nd, at Cala Pitera on Sunday the 23rd, at Playa del Cura on Monday the 24th, and Playa de los Locos on Tuesday the 25th.
The campaign is aimed at everyone and their are activities for all ages. In the tent there will be activities and games for children, who must be accompanied by their parents, and they can also get their photos taken. There will also be recycling activities for adults to take part in, as well as information about the environmental state of our coast.
These activities are part of the Blue Flag programe, which have been awarded to five local beaches. Councillor Fanny Serrano said they are important because they are a distinction showing there is environmental quality in conjunction with a specific protection programe.
Councillor Juan Antonio Pujol noted the whole coastline from Cabo de Palos to just north of Tabarca Island is protected at European level as a bird sanctuary and for the marine life. He added that the sea grass prairies and their associated wildlife are the best preserved in Alicante province.
