Salobreña Peñon Clean Up

SAL US Volunteers on PeñonThanks to a group of American student volunteers, Salobreña’s Peñon is ‘looking a lot less litter cluttered’ – try saying that after a jar or two.

After receiving a talk on local flora and fauna by environmental specialists, they set off on Friday to tidy up Salobreña’s most emblematic coastline feature. In just a few hours they had bagged around 250 kilos of litter and rubbish, mostly drink cans, glass bottles, plastic bags and cigarette butts.

These students belong to the International Studies Abroad (ISA) and this civic action was part of their programme.

In the meantime, municipal workers have been weeding the beach – sounds a strange thing to say, but thanks to the high silt content of the sand lorried in to replace parts of the beach washed away by wave action, some parts of the beaches have started to sprout lawns.
