The actions seek to involve the educational community in the conservation of protected natural spaces.
Around forty students from the Damià Huguet Secondary School (IES) in Campos took part this week in a day of volunteering in the Es Trenc-Salobrar Natural Park in Campos, organised by the Directorate of Protected Natural Spaces in coordination with the Es Palmer Learning Centre.
The actions are included in the project for the restoration of habitats and species of community interest in the dune system of the areas formerly occupied by the fixed kiosk-bars of sa Ràpita, s’Arenal d’en Tem and na Tirapèl.
The students have carried out reforestation work on the dune system. Specifically, they have planted species typical of this environment such as sand couch grass (Elymus farctus) or sea holly (Eryngium maritimum) as well as junipers (Juniperus phoenicea) from the Forestry Centre of the Balearic Islands (CEFOR).
The volunteer work has also made it possible to return the remains of old accumulations of Posidonia to the sea in order to reincorporate the sediment into the system and clean the beach of waste, especially plastics and microplastics.
The aim of these activities is to involve the educational community in the conservation of protected natural areas. Three more volunteer days are planned for October and November.
