Stone circles and towers on beaches

The City Council of Pájara proceeds to the withdrawal of the "Monoliths" and the "Corralitos" in various beaches of the Municipality.

The new municipal corporation decides to carry out the dismantling of the famous monoliths and the corralitos that can be seen in several points of our coasts and that both affect the environment.

The practice of raising mounds, or "rock stacking" as it is known in English, not only supposes an alteration of the landscape, but also causes environmental damage.

Last weekend, he has ordered the withdrawal of several monoliths and corralitos located on different beaches of the municipality of Pájara.

These apparently harmless structures alter the insular ecosystem. Flora and fauna are affected by removing the stones. On the one hand, the flora, which takes advantage of the moisture of the stones, dies. The fauna, which inhabits these stones, disappears. This is why the food chain is severely affected, since many invertebrates and various plants are food sources for other species.

From the areas of beaches and municipal services, citizen collaboration is requested to avoid such practices and become aware of the environmental impact it entails. In this regard, beach watchers will collaborate in the tasks of information and control to avoid leaving that characteristic trail. In addition, the Local Police will be responsible for enforcing the Coastal Law as well as the Municipal Beach Regulations, with penalties ranging from € 1,501 to € 3,000.

Members of the municipal government board insist that the most important task is to explain and sensitize both residents and tourists. The Councilor for Beaches, Dunia Álvaro, declares: “The Mojones or Monoliths are placed by imitation, we see one and we want to place ours as a souvenir. However, we are not aware of the damage it causes ”and in this sense“ If we want to show off the wild landscape in Fuerteventura, how beautiful it is is in its natural state, without alterations ”

With regard to corralitos, we have proceeded to dismantle several structures of enormous dimensions that, in addition to modifying the habitat, accumulated user waste such as mats, papers and plastics. Jose Díaz, Delegate Councilor of the Services area has been responsible for the removal of said waste and insists that “it is vitally important to keep our beaches in optimal conditions for everyone to enjoy. We must be aware of the environment and keep our environment clean ”

From Radio Sintonia:

Pájara removes monoliths from Esquinzo beach

The Pájara town hall , through the Beaches council, directed by Raimundo Dacosta, has once again proceeded to dismantle the corralitos and stone structures that were invading Esquinzo beach, causing alterations in the landscape and negatively affecting the natural cycle of this arenal.

"We remind the resident population and the tourists who visit us that these types of structures have serious environmental consequences by not allowing the normal transit of the sand to the dunes and tongues of land in this area," explains the southern mayor, Pedro Armas.

The municipal corporation already proceeded last year to remove numerous monoliths and sheds from the coast of the municipality, which sometimes exceed one and a half meters in height, and where a large amount of garbage and belongings that ended up in the sea also accumulated, with the damages that this causes to the natural environment.

And it is that these structures alter the island ecosystem, since the flora and fauna are affected by removing the stones. On the one hand, the flora, which takes advantage of the humidity of the stones, dies and, on the other, the fauna that inhabits these stones, disappears.

The responsible councilor, Raimundo Dacosta, points out that actions like this are essential for the beach to regenerate. "With these periodic cleaning campaigns we make sure that the beaches have the necessary sand and we avoid consequences derived from this attack on the environment," he points out, also emphasizing the existing dangers in the face of the risk of collapse of these man-made buildings .
From the town hall of Pájara , citizen collaboration is requested to avoid such practices and to become aware of the environmental impact it entails, remembering that non-compliance with the Coastal Law and the Municipal Beach Regulations implies considerable sanctions.
