WORK UNDERWAY FOR THE REHABILITATION AND PRESERVATION OF MARBELLA’S COASTAL SAND DUNE AREAS
DUNE “LA VÍBORA”, ELVIRIA
DUNE AREAS “RÍO REAL-RESERVA DE LOS MONTEROS
The Ministry of the Environment through the andalusian Coastal Demarcation office are the Authorities that have set underway this much expected and yearned for work that our Association have been demanding for years. As known, every year the Association is carrying out environmental education programs in the sand dune areas of Marbella, working with the Hon. Town Hall of Marbella and with Marbella’s and other regions high schools pupils through days of eradication of the invasive alien plants, the Highway Ice plant (Carpobrotus edulis).
Reeds and Coojong (Acacia Saligna) are invading the sand dune areas with great virulence, which exceeds the capacity of our Association. Therefore, the support of the relevant authorities with machinery is necessary to rehabilitate the natural vegetation and then carrying out a programme for replanting native seedlings (3.000), once the rainy season starts, to ensure the survival of this flora.
Wooden railings and pedestrian walkways to the beach will highlight the sand dune nature and ensure the survival of these beautiful sand dunes.
These projects now underway are a living example of the rehabilitation that will be carried out in the remaining sand dune areas that we are demanding to be preserved and protected, between Marbella and the Natural Monument “Artola” in Cabopino.
