THE protected wildflower reserve in Moraira’s Portixolet area has been extended to just over two hectares.
The announcement in the Generalitat’s official bulletin, the DOGV, multiplies the original extension by six, Teulada-Moraira Town Hall’s Environment department revealed.
The regional government’s Environment department has introduced more examples of native but vulnerable species including Helianthemum caput-felis (Cat’s head rockrose) and Medicago citrina (Spanish moon trefoil), reintroduced following the Portixolet fire in the summer of 2015.
The same DOGV announcement included details of two new operations to control the invasion of exotic species and regenerating fire-damaged areas.
