VOLUNTEERS have been doing their bit to keep the Cabo de Gata’s beaches waste-free.

In an initiative organised by the Cabo de Gata Clean Ocean Project, the Nuevo Rumbo Association and Nijar council’s Development and Tourism department, volunteers spent a morning picking up rubbish along the coast from the Playa de los Escullos beach up to the Isleta del Moro viewing point.

Nuevo Rumbo reported that many of those taking part said it had made them realise just how extensive the problem of waste in marine environments is.

The association said the initiative came under an agreement with the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park management to organise beach clean-ups and raise awareness about the damage to marine biodiversity from dumping waste into the sea, and plastic in particular.
