The Chair of New Green Transition at the Universitat de València has visited the past 6th of may the Albufera of Valencia, together with the Information Service and Promotion of Students of the UV (SEDE-UV) and students of the Tourism degree of the Faculty of Economics. The aim of the visit was to learn more about the situation of the lake, as well as to collaborate in the cleaning of plastics in this Natural Park. Specifically, the route took them from the Port of Catarroja to the Pipa fence.
The visit was also attended by members of Acción Ecologista Agró, who explained to the students the serious impact it will have on this environment if the Port of Valencia is finally expanded. The current size of this infrastructure has already caused the coastal strip that separates the Albufera from the sea to be greatly reduced, affecting the size of the beaches of Saler and Perelló. An expansion of the port would aggravate this situation and could even finally end up with the lake. Finally, the importance of this Natural Park for migratory birds was also discussed.
