The Erosions of Bolnuevo declared natural monument (20/03/2019)

The executive of the Region of Murcia has approved, at the proposal of the Ministry of Employment, Universities, Business and Environment, the declaration as a natural monument of Bolnuevo Erosions.

The uniqueness, beauty and rarity of the natural elements and geological formations of Bolnuevo Erosions make this space worthy of special protection that entails the adoption of conservation measures that ensure its preservation.

Its classification in the category of Natural Monument is justified by the relevant geological interest of the enclave and its scientific, cultural and landscape value.

The space protected with this figure covers a total area of ​​2.41 hectares, as reported by the mayor of Mazarrón, Alicia Jiménez, after the meeting of the Governing Council held in Mazarrón.

The declaration is based on the high value and singularity that Erosions represent as more representative examples of differential erosion or alveolar erosion 'in honeycomb', consequence of the greater or lesser wear of the relief, depending on the different hardness of the materials of the ground.

The natural environment of the Erosions of Bolnuevo also houses an abundant collection of fossil remains, which include the remains of corals and some bivalves molluscs - of special rarity.

The environmental group also collects significant geological evidence of the tectonic history of the area, which is evidenced by an outcrop of fractured dolomites or the presence of verticalized fault planes.

Also, the Erosions are located between the extensive beach of Bolnuevo and the landscape of special attractiveness of the sun of the Sierra de las Moreras.

This semi-arid environment is home to an ecosystem of extraordinary singularity, dominated by scrub forest masses such as espartal, tomillar or romeral, which serve as sustenance for species of great importance such as the black tortoise, the ocellated lizard or the birds of prey, Bonelli's eagle or peregrine falcon, among other.

It is the second Natural Monument that is declared in the Region of Murcia, after the Arab Mountain of Yecla, in March 2016.
