Mazarrón joins the "Turtles in the Mediterranean" campaign (06/08/2019)

Mazarrón City Council has joined the 'Turtles in the Mediterranean' campaign that the Oceanographic Foundation and Red Cross have launched to protect these marine reptiles.

An initiative promoted and praised by the departments of Services of the Coast and Animal Welfare of the City of Mazarrón.

The awareness campaign consists of placing more demil posters in 'mupis' and other supports in which bathers and travelers are informed of the presence of the loggerhead turtle ('Caretta, caretta') on our coasts and that, in case if a sighting occurs, the most convenient and effective is to call 112 with which the Varamiento Network is activated.

Mazarrón participates in this initiative along with other municipalities (more than 40 in total) belonging to the Valencian, Balearic and Murcian coasts.

In the Region of Murcia, in addition to Mazarrón, they have also joined the San Pedro del Pinatar and Águilas campaign.

The Councilor for Litoral Services, Raquel Raja, stressed that "we have to be aware of the value of our beaches and the life they host. An ecosystem that we must take care of and protect, since it is in our hands to continue enjoying it or, on the contrary, make it disappear. Hence the importance of initiatives like this that we do not hesitate to support from the first moment ".

For its part, the Councilor for Animal Welfare, Silvia García, has stated that "one of our big bets for this term is the defense and protection of animals. In this case of turtles and marine ecosystem species since pollution and poaching threatens their survival. Problems we will be very aware of. "

The mayor said that "sea turtles have an important role because they help fight jellyfish and the negative effects that their overpopulation can cause in the ecosystem, so we must safeguard their existence."
