SUMMARY OF INVASIVE PLANT ERADICATION CARRIED OUT IN SAND DUNE AREAS OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF MARBELLA FROM 2004 TO 2014
Regarding our request to have the dunes areas designated the “Ecological Reserve – Marbella Dunes”, we compiled several statistical data and put together all the activities carried out in the 10 years we have been in operation.
We realized just how important keeping statistics is, because only with these data can we show how hard our members had to work at the beginning of this Association and how essential it is that schools get actively involved in the “Dune Sponsorship for Schools.”
