Today at Atalaya Golf & Country Club we once again have hopeful and happy news about the role of our golf course and the positive impact it has on the local fauna.
The otters have been seen active and we continue to observe the presence of genets and mongooses on the course, in addition to the enlistment of 2 badgers which appear to be, according to the biologists in charge of the study of the fauna, a female and her offspring.
This is a very important piece of information as this species is very sensitive to habitat fragmentation and loss, which is why its presence in Atalaya is further proof of the role it plays as a refuge. This species is in a process of regression all along the coast, which is why it is becoming increasingly difficult to see them.
As we know the environment of Atalaya is an ideal space for many species that day by day join this great family and make our golf course their home to live, take refuge, find food and procreate.
News like this makes clear the importance of golf courses for the preservation of local wildlife and gives us strength and hope to continue working on it.
Here is a short video where you can see the presence of these animals in the Atalaya Golf & Country Club course.
