| The campaign will be carried out on an itinerant basis in the coastal municipalities of the Mar Menor from Friday to Sunday until August 30 | The councilor of San Javier Estíbaliz Masegosa accompanied the director general of the Mar Menor, Miriam Pérez, on her visit to Santiago de la Ribera today, where she presented the environmental awareness campaign "Mar Menor 2020".
The campaign will run until August 30 from Friday to Sunday, on an itinerant basis, in the municipalities of San Javier, Cartagena, Los Alcázares and San Pedro del Pinatar with the aim of raising awareness about the protection of fauna and flora and the harmful effects of waste. Miriam Pérez explained that "environmental awareness workshops will be held on the beaches for residents and tourists, including children and boat users, to publicize the wealth of spaces with special environmental protection in the Mar Menor environment and create a culture and a collective awareness of the commitment we all have to your care.
" During the campaign, it is expected to inform about 700 people each of the 24 days it consists of.
Monitors with environmental training participate in the informative tasks, and among the planned activities it is important to raise awareness about the species of flora and fauna protected or threatened that will be carried out among children and adults. In this sense, all the itinerant workshops will include environmental education and training related to ecological care of the environment.
In addition, the Mar Menor marinas will be warned about the prohibitions and good practices that boat users must respect in the area. The general director pointed out that "for the Mar Menor, you can fight on many fronts, and one of them is the informational and educational one, such as the scientific one, and the normative one, where we have been making decisive decisions to reverse its state and prevent its deterioration.
, or that of the action aimed at tackling at source the threats that affect it most directly.
" This campaign, which the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Environment has been developing for three years, also seeks to show the harmful effects of waste in the aquatic environment. A series of illustrative panels on the fauna and flora of the Mar Menor and their care have also been distributed along the coastline, as well as answering a series of questions about their condition and recovery. Preventive measures The workshops will be carried out with special hygienic measures, to avoid the risk of contagion.
For this, the activities will follow the regulations established for the Covid-19 epidemic.
Following the official considerations for the realization of this type of events, crowds or queues will be avoided, establishing an informative appointment service.
In addition, the participation of vulnerable people will be avoided and activities that risk contagion will not be scheduled. In the same way, the cleaning and disinfection protocol will be applied after each visit, having hydroalcoholic gel for hand washing, as well as informative signage for maintaining the physical safety distance and the prohibition of touching the materials.
