Los Alcornocales Natural Park

OPPORTUNITIES for employment, greater tourism prospects and environmental improvement have been hailed.

Irene Garcia, president of the Provincial Council of Andalucia, has praised the expansion of Los Alcornocales Natural Park, highlighting it as an area for growth in the region.

She has rejoiced in that fact that more than 5,800 hectares of extra space that will be added and emphasised the positive impact that this move will have on future generations.

This measure protects an important ecological corridor that joins the forests of the park with the Mediterranean coast and adds to the network of protected natural spaces that already exist in the area.

Also pointed out was a study which revealed that municipalities with protected areas have a higher wealth and a rise in their income per capita compared to other rural areas without such spaces.
