BBR Heads North? North Tenerife

BBR Heads North? North Tenerife

Boogie Bunker Radio has now been broadcasting across the South of Tenerife on 87.7FM, for the past 6 months. Bringing to Tenerife its brand of Modern & Classic Soul and Dance music. It has always been the plan of the Station to expand across the the whole of the island of Tenerife. Anyone who has visited the island, would know that the landscape of mountains makes this difficult and costly.

However the success of the station on the south of the island, made it imperative that the station found a way of bringing the station to the whole of the island. We have therefore decided to expand the station and extend the range across Tenerife, and include the North of the island. This will need an addition frequency for our listeners in the North of Tenerife 90.2FM BBR Tenerife

Alongside our currently available frequency in South 87.7FM BBR Tenerife

Boogie Bunker Radio will continue to broadcast across Tenerife on 87.7FM & 90.2FM from 1st March 2019. We would like to thank the people of Tenerife for supporting BBR Tenerife, and it is our hope to continue to bring our brand of Radio to the island of Tenerife and Worldwide on www.boogiebunkerradio.com

Loro Parque, Saviors of a Species

Loro Parque, Saviors of a Species

Photos: Loro Parque.

Updated 15 February 2019: We’ve been following this story for almost a couple of years now, and at last Loro Parque is able to say that it is extraordinarily proud that its success with Lear’s Macaw has not only brought the bird back from the brink of extinction but that the Fundación has been able to start its programme of release to the wild in Brazil. The video below, released by the park, shows how the birds started to be acclimatized to their new free environment before they even left Tenerife, living in a mock-up of their natural territory and being provided with the food – and the need to search for it – that they will have to find for themselves in Brazil. This gradual and supported reintroduction is known as  “soft release”, and is used to allow the birds to be as prepared as they can be for their life of freedom in their natural habitat, no longer at extreme species risk.The Lear’s Macaw is still “endangered” but it’s no longer on the brink of being lost for ever. No wonder Loro Parque is proud!

Updated 25 August 2018: After bringing the Lear’s macaw back from the brink, Loro Parque says that it’s delighted that the Foundation has managed not only to bring the species from “critically endangered” to “endangered” on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Red List, but is also releasing six birds bred in Tenerife into the wild in Brazil. The birds have already left the island for the new life of freedom in a species success story that mirrors the Foundation’s work with the blue-throated macaw. The following video has been released by Loro Parque with an English text bar.

 

Original post 7 June 2017: Loro Parque Foundation has said that its breeding programme for Lear’s macaw (Anodorhynchus leari), an endangered species from north Brazil, continues to be successful, and that the Puerto de la Cruz facility is the the only zoological center in Europe to achieve this. LPF says that the Brazilian government first sent a pair of Lear’s macaws for reproduction to Loro Parque in 2006, and since then 30 have been hatched in Tenerife, nine of them already having been returned to Brazil.

Whatever else people feel about Loro Parque, and there are always strong feelings about the Orca facility, and some people dislike the ideas of zoos altogether, their work with birds is exceptional, and when it comes to macaws and parrots, their acclimatization has been fundamental in order to achieve such a successful breeding programme. LPF says that the imitation of their natural habitat, the good climate and the food from the licuri palm tree – the same they feed on in Brazil – have been the keys of producing such good results.

Lear’s macaws suffer illegal trade with the capture of chicks, and mature birds are not protected and indeed are harrassed by agriculturalists. Their habitat is also increasingly degraded by the use of land for cattle, and by indiscriminate collection of leaves and fruits of the licuri palm.

Along with its work on the Blue Throated macaw, LPF has almost single-handedly brought these birds back from the brink of ‘critically endangered’ status. The Lear’s macaw is still categorized as a species under threat, but so far nearly €500,000 has been invested in the protection of the birds in their natural habitat through the Foundation in addition to work done in Puerto de la Cruz itself. The objective remains to situate the Lear’s macaw as an unmanaged species, reducing the threats it faces and restoring the wild population, as well as protecting the palm tree which is essential for the long-term recovery of the species.

Election Called Over Budget

Election Called Over Budget

Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has called a general election on 28 April. Sánchez is leader of the socialist party, PSOE, which has been in minority Government since a vote of No Confidence last summer (see HERE), and as we saw only a week ago with the proposed urban letting law (see HERE), Sánchez can’t get legislation through Parliament. He has called this election, Spain’s third in four years, after the budget itself failed to be approved.

The election will be held just a month before the local and European elections and no doubt all sides will be hoping at least for a majority government elected on national issues without further division over regional or European disputes. British nationals, of course, will be watching keenly to see whether the new Government, if a different make-up to the current one, makes any changes or signals any moves away from Sánchez’s generous stance in offering continued rights for Brits in Spain after Brexit if the UK reciprocates.

Environmental Restoration

Updated 12 February 2019: The Canarian Government’s Environment Department has initiated procedures to declare areas around the Taucho shooting range to be “contaminated”. The measure was taken at the end of last month and follows denuncias, studies and checks last year which showed elevated levels of arsenic and lead from discarded munitions. These are said to be a danger to the public in the area, and the Government says that the action is being taken now because the council hasn’t done the clean-up work required.

Adeje Ayuntamiento itself has said today that it decided voluntarily last June to close the shooting range following information received from the Tenerife Cabildo’s Water Board that mentioned a “minimum possibility” of water contamination as a result of discharged bullets. The council argues that a report was released by the provincial prosecutors office in just the last few days confirming that the case was to be archived since it appeared there was no serious damage to natural resources nor to human health.

In the meantime Adeje says it has been cleaning up the area in question, removing over 80% of residue. Last week after a meeting with the regional vice-director of the environment it has been decided to bring in a specialist company to assist in an environmental recovery plan; new information was presented at the meeting that suggests it could be old ‘platas’ that are t the root of the contaminants detected. They would be over 4 years old as that was when new platas were introduced which are biodegradable.

The council expressed some concern at the lack of clarity in information disseminated to the public by the regional authorities, in particular the alleged “high levels” of contamination when in fact studies have shown levels were low from the first proper study. Regardless of the detail in the war of words, the council says it is 100% commmitted to the environmental restoration of the area, and that it will be taking all necessary measures in future to ensure that the zone will be an example of good environmental practice as well as a sporting benchmark for the Canaries.

Updated 1 June 2018: Adeje Ayuntamiento has closed the Taucho firing range while the Island Water Board considers the application for shooting to be carried out, with the associated spills of lead shot being collected and cleaned up periodically. In the meantime, the council is continuing with its 2016 plan to clean up the spillage of lead at the site in the barranco de Ajabo.

Original post 27 April: Shooting at the Taucho firing range could be suspended by order of the Island Water Board after lead contamination has been found in the barranco de Ajabo alongside the village. The Consejo Insular de Aguas says that the shooting range, which comes under the jurisdiction of Adeje Ayuntamiento, has been found to have left some 24 tons of lead pellets in the bed of the barranco which must now be cleaned by technicians authorized for such residues.

The island’s branch of the political party Podemos says that it has been complaining for years that this is a recognized public-health and environmental problem, and that something should have been done long before now. Party spokesman Fernando Sabaté said that the council has been fined €30,000 by the Canarian Environment Protection Agency for the spillage. Podemos has been joined in recent years by the pressure group Amigos en Defensa de Ajabo to urge the Consejo Insular de Aguas (CIAT), the Cabildo and the local Ayuntamiento to take this action.

Adeje Ayuntamiento for its part says that technicians have confirmed that there is no danger or immediate risk to health, and that the amount of lead found in the Ajabo pozo is low and within established safe limits, and represents no danger of contaminating underground water reserves. The council has a fortnight to reply to the proposal to suspend activity at the range.
