License for confusion in Spanish natural parks

CONFUSING new laws demanding guides get licenses to visit each of the 24 natural parks in Andalucia is threatening to damage environmental tourism.

According to Peter Jones, chairman of the Andalucia Bird Society, a decree introduced in February states you need a license to go into restricted areas in any natural park.

“Can you imagine anything so crazy as applying for a license for every park in Andalucia?” he said.

“That’s 24 licenses each year if you want to do this work, it is absurd.”

On top of this, he adds, few departments seem to understand the rule.

“It seems that whichever section you talk to gives a different interpretation,” added Jones.

“But whatever the answer it is likely to have a negative affect on many peoples work to develop environmental tourism in Andalucia”.
