Good karma for chameleons

ENDANGERED: The common chameleon.

MANILVA COUNCIL is continuing with its plan to reinforce and stablise the local population of chameleons in the municipality, by introducing new adult examples as part of an ongoing conservation effort.

The head of Manilva’s Environment Department, Councillor Maria Muñoz, visited the reserve along with Manuel Romero, chief of Environmental and Biodiversity Management at the Junta de Andalucia regional government’s Environmental Ministry, plus a group of municipal technicians, to release a number of the fascinating creatures.

By introducing additional chameleons to augment the existing population, the council hope to increase numbers of the boggle-eyed reptiles in the town’s coastal nature reserve, where they are known to breed.

Each specimen is microchipped in order to monitor its progress, and it is strictly prohibited to capture or harm the species, which is protected under local and national law.
