Medio Natural makes the Salinas de San Pedro Visitor Center available to carry out this initiative that is part of the actions to protect biodiversity and fight against 'rubbish' carried out by the Libera de Seo / BirdLife project in collaboration with Ecoembes. This is one of the 80 sponsorships that are being developed throughout the national territory.
Similar actions are also carried out in the 'El Cejo' natural area, in the municipality of Lorca, by the Ciudad del Sol Scout Group.
The objective is to avoid the abandonment of waste in the natural environment, such as organic remains, cigarette butts and packaging, among others, that generate a landscape, economic, social and environmental impact associated with biodiversity. The aforementioned Murcia Clean Region Association invites citizens to stop by the Salinas de San Pedro Visitor Center, where they will find a large panel that shows the effects that 'garbage' can have on the park's birdlife, using infographics.
which will help them decide to collect all the waste they find on their walk in the park. The project aims to make visible a problem that affects the populations of more than 800 aquatic species worldwide, as well as dozens of species that inhabit the Salinas.
People who collect waste, deposit it in their corresponding containers and share their action on social networks will receive a flamingo-shaped brooch made from plastic waste collected on our coasts. Trash delivery Volunteers from the Murcia Clean Region will also visit the beach bars and the hostel near the Salinas de San Pedro regional park to deliver 70-liter yellow and blue litter bins, so that customers can deposit their waste.
They will also suggest the use of ashtrays to prevent cigarette butts from being thrown on the ground. They will also ask the managers of these establishments to reduce the use of unnecessary products, such as single-use straws, which are liable to become abandoned waste.
In gratitude for their commitment against 'rubbish', they will also receive a flamenco-shaped brooch and a poster that will distinguish them as 'Padrinos Libera'.
