When working on a new product design related to the interpretation of Natural Heritage, we use to think on wildlife. Sometimes we link wildlife and others themes like Cultural Heritage or humanscape, but less often we let those themes be the leitmotiv of the tour. Astronomy, like geology, is one of those themes that we use to consider a resource more than a product, but we should realize that its interest is frequently higher than we think. First, because they are holistic resources, in a sense that everything is related with them. But second, including Astronomy, they are always there waiting for the guide with the ability to vertebrate a Natural Heritage Tour based on the inert side of the environment.
Education & leisure meet on a stunning WE-Nature tour in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park in South East Spain
Today we've had the opportunity to enjoy a day trip with six lovely clients, Mathew, Sam, Ben, Jonathan and their parents Philip and Jo. It's been an amazing day, starting on the salt pans where we saw Flamingoes, Grey Herons, Cattle Egrets, Shell-ducks, Avocets and Northern Shovelers, in the company of a persistent but soft rain that our guests have stoically endured. After that we've gone to the smaller Rambla de Morales lagoon westwards, where we have enjoyed with the presence of some couples of White-headed Ducks, a lot of Coots, some Common Moorhens, more Flamingoes, Gulls and some Eurasian Curlews. In the beach near the lagoon we've performed a short game trying to identify pebbles from different origins, metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary ones, and we've understood some of the signs of the presence of the Carboneras Fault, one of the most important faults in the Wild East.
