A GROUP of British volunteers has spent two weeks protecting a natural park in Andalucia.
Ten helpers from UK-based NGO Conservation Volunteers spent a fortnight at the limestone-dominated Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park, 6km from El Burgo.
Working alongside the park’s network of volunteers in a project overseen by the Junta, the team planted trees, installed nesting boxes for birds and bats and strengthened the banks of the river.
In the absence of paths, the volunteers used donkeys to transport cement and water.
Conservation Volunteers organises working holidays to allow the environmentally-conscious to help preserve green spaces all over the planet.
