Moth night in Motril


MOTHS are some of the most unknown insects and an event in Motril is about to put a solution to this fact.

The Suarez Wetlands in Motril will celebrate on Friday and Saturday (September 18 and 19) and for the first time in Spain, the ‘Night of the Moths’, an event to expose the great diversity and richness of the Iberian nocturnal butterflies (also known as moths).

Council representatives explained that this event, organised by association ALAS, will be celebrated at the same time in several other points of Europe and Spain, as it was born from an initiative by the British Association of Butterfly Conservation.


Activities for all ages will be carried out in the wetlands. These include games to get to know different moth species, lectures and a workshop to attract the insects with sources of light (pictures) and study them from a closer perspective.

Events will take place from 8.30pm to 11pm. For more information call Jorge Garzon at 680 381 360.
