MORE than 60 volunteers participated in an environmental cleanup day at the natural park of La Mata and Torrevieja.
The initiative – entitled ‘Clean up nature. Our park without waste’ – was held in collaboration with AKI DIY store in Torrevieja and the ‘Walking by walking’ association.
The cleanup targeted the area in the south of the salt lake by El Chaparral, which was repopulated in the 1950s with pines and is considered of great importance for many species that inhabit the natural park. The cleanup aimed to promote and maintain the ecosystem in the best possible condition, improving and preserving the biodiversity of the area.
Mayor Eduardo Dolon thanked all the volunteers for their commitment to improving this important natural area and congratulated the park management for carrying out such initiatives allowing voluntary participation by both young and old.
