Lanzarote Walk, Giant Fossil Eggs

We attended the “Pisadas sobre huellas - Los avestruces de Órzola" walk organised by the Cabildo of Lanzarote today to visit the sites of archaeological interest at Valle Grande & Valle Chico.

Footpath to Valle GrandeGiant egg fossils Lanzarote

There are two short walks both within a kilometre of the main road, where you can visit the area that has been excavated to discover these giant fossil eggs which are believed to be around 6 million years old. We met the latest team of 30 students from different areas of Spain who are spending the month of August excavating to try and uncover more fossils and hopefully bones, although it is rare to find any in situ with the eggs.

Valle Grande

To find the footpath to Valle Grande pick up the dirt track on the right of the LZ-203 heading towards Pardelas Park. The track becomes a single file footpath to the barranco of Valle Grande. You will see the layer of basalt that has been carefully chipped away over several years, if you climb up to that level, you can find a smooth egg shaped dish on the furthest section where one of the eggs was found.  read more »

Outcry as the Spanish Government proceed with oil prospecting in the Canary Islands

Last week the Spanish Government gave Repsol the definitive green light to go ahead and prospect for oil in the Canary Islands.

The decision was published in the official state bulletin on Wednesday, despite all the opposition and environmental arguments raised to date. Repsol have confirmed that they will comply with all of the government requirements which include a fund of €20 million to cover any environmental costs and a €40 million civil responsibility policy. 

Our local Government, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, WWF, Ecologistas en Accion and SEO Birdlife are all appealing the decision, as they believe the process has been plagued with irregularities.

Repsol now have three years to carry out surveys, the company is required to stop all activities in the case of any seismic activity registering over 4.5 on the Richter scale and in the event of any kind of accident, they also have to allow access for inspections over the course of the exploration process.

To recap, Repsol have been given a  read more »

Hoglet

I was out in our garden one morning in July watching the sunrise when my attention was drawn to something squeaking. On closer inspection I found it was a tiny hedgehog who had clearly lost it’s mum as they shouldn’t be out in the open during daylight.

After observing the hedgehog for a while it was just rocking back and too, squeaking in the picón,so  I wrapped a towel around it and brought it inside. I didn’t have a clue what to do next! Unlike the UK, there’s no hedgehog rescue centres in Lanzarote, so I put the baby in a cardboard box with a towel whilst I carried out some research on the internet.

It was not good news, hoglets are hard to rear. This little mite was obviously hungry and distressed, still emitting pitiful squeaks I read that the rescue centres in the UK give them puppy formula, goat’s milk was also mentioned as a short term solution. I thought finding a goat’s milk source locally would be easy, but after asking in the village, short of trekking up to one of the goat farms there was none for sale that day, it could only be ordered in for tomorrow. I drove down to our local vets where to my surprise they had a tin of the formula recommended in the UK – Royal Canin Babydog milk.

Despite my best efforts on day one, I could not get the hedgehog to drink the milk, it just ignored it, walking through the dish, taking no interest.  By day two I was really worried  read more »
