It was a pleasure to welcome a group of University students from the Catholic University of Ávila who are studying for a Master’s Degree to become:

“Experts in the Defence and Conservation of Nature”.

We are honoured to have been able to give them a comprehensive explanation of the formation of the dune systems and of the rich biodiversity in the Natural Monument “Dunas de Artola”.

They showed great interest in and knowledge of botany and we initiated them in how to grub out, manually, from the root, the invasive False Mimosa (Acacia saligna) species.

We hope they will not forget their short stay in Marbella and that they enjoyed both the interesting nature in the dunes as well as the well-earned swim off on the beautiful Cabopino beach.
