World Wetlands Day (01/02/2017)

The next Sunday, February 4, 2017, between 9:00 am and 1:00 p.m., an environmental improvement activity will be carried out in the lagoons of Las Salinas on the occasion of World Wetlands Day, which is officially the 2nd of February.

The tasks to be performed will be of placement and arrangement of the visual shielding of the lagoons and of disclosure of their natural values.

The Standing Committee of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands has, since 1997, been the promoter of this commemoration.

This year's motto is "Wetlands for Disaster Risk Reduction".

It seeks to increase awareness of the importance of wetlands in reducing the impact of extreme events such as floods and droughts, as well as the ability of human communities and other living beings to adapt to such natural disasters.

Increasingly, there is an urgent need to raise awareness of the importance of wetlands as regulators of the water cycle and its alterations.

In this sense, natural spaces as unique as the lakes of Las Salinas, municipal property and recently (January 9, 2015) integrated within the Special Protection Area for Birds (ZEPA) "Saladares del Guadalentín", are confirmed as Key elements for the regulation of the use of water and the conservation of natural biodiversity, in this case with species as threatened as malvasía cabeciblanca, which reproduces in this ecosystem.

The activity is organized jointly by the Association for the Study and Conservation of Nature MELES and the Department of Environment of this City, all under the Convention of Custody of the Territory signed by both parties on January 26, 2016. Account With the collaboration of the OISMA (Office of Socioeconomic Impact of the Environment), the Ministry of Water, Agriculture and Environment.
