Work progresses on the recovery of the Encañizada del Ventorrillo in Mar Menor

Antonio Luengo, Regional Minister for the Environment of the Region of Murcia, points out that access to the islet and the construction of the masonry wall and the jetty have been enabled, as well as environmental and archaeological monitoring tasks.

Part of the work to restore the Encañizada del Ventorrillo, in the north of the Mar Menor, has been completed in order to respect the breeding season of the birds. The remaining work, to increase the depth and install the artisanal fishing system, will be resumed in September.

What has already been done consists of the fitting out of the access to the islet and the construction of the masonry wall and the jetty, as well as environmental and archaeological monitoring and an inventory of flora and fauna. After the summer, the rest of the project will be undertaken, with a budget of around 800,000 euros. For the time being, according to Antonio Luengo, the councillor for the Environment, the rehabilitation of the old Ventorrillo building is not included.

The councillor, Antonio Luengo, explained that “they are stopped in order to favour the breeding of protected species and preserve the biodiversity of the ecosystem inhabited by a wide variety of birds, including flamingos, terns, little terns, egrets and sandpipers, which begin their reproductive or nesting processes at this time of year”.
