Beach Clean-up on World Wetland Day 2nd of February
mardi 2 février 2021
Oualidia’s lagoon in Morocco is an exceptional site of ecological importance for bird conservation that extends over 12km. Protected by the RAMSAR Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, the lagoon is a stopover haven for most water bird species that migrate the east-Atlantic route between Spain and sub-Saharan Africa in Spring and Autumn. Rare bird species including pink flamingos, grey herons, great cormorants, storks and spatulas visit the lagoon during these times. Overlooking the lagoon lies La Sultana Oualidia, a beguiling Moorish fortress surrounded by orange, olive and palm trees, a hidden gem with 12 individually designed rooms and suites. The team at La Sultana Oualidia feel passionately about protecting the lagoon and in particular safeguarding the life of the birds by banishing plastic pollution. This is why, on 2 February 2021, to honour World Wetland Day the entire team at La Sultana Oualidia will spend a whole day cleaning up the lagoon. Come and spend time in one of Morocco's crucial wetlands for World Wetlands Day 2021. La Sultana Oualidia are pleased to work with the local community to ensure the local lagoon, beaches and town are clean and free of rubbish. The team invite volunteers to partake and will be delighted to provide a bag for them to put any discarded rubbish inside. Once finished, the bag can be returned to La Sultana Oualidia’s concierge who will ensure it is recycled or disposed of appropriately. Volunteers are then invited to enjoy a cup of Moroccan Mint tea as a thank you for helping to keep Oualidia clean. Please email us at [email protected] to book your participation. Thank you!
