JULY 2008


Every summer, from June to October, huge efforts are made, included our Association, to protect nature from potential disasters caused by fire.

Therefore, it is worth to continue preserving and respecting the entire indigenous flora that there is in our sand dunes area, such as is the case of the Curry plant (Helichrysum stoechas). This wild flower is protected and must not be used for commercial purposes. Harvesting its flower condemns it to fulminant death.

We ask everyone to help protect this plant, which provides us with an exuberant blooming, if we let it grow and develop its biological cycles to full term. It also contributes to the stabilization of the dunes, giving shelter to a variety of fauna.
