EQUINAC is authorised under resolution of the ministry of agriculture, food and the environment for the tasks of rescue and recovery of sea life and reintroduction of marine fauna in the province of Almeria, Spain.
The organisation itself has been operational for more than 15 years and it is dedicated in the main to rescuing sea creatures including dolphins and sea turtles who have got themselves into difficulty through no fault of their own, and find themselves in desperate trouble in the water or on the beach/coastline itself.
Any donations, small, large, whatever, will be greatly accepted and appreciated and to boost funds, Tony Matthews (Spectrum Radio and former sports correspondent with the EWN and Sol Times) has organised a bumper general knowledge quiz evening at the Sawardee Thai Restaurant on Mojacar Playa on Monday June 11 (tel 634 393 235).
The quiz will start at 5pm with a special two-course meal (if required) to follow for just €8.
The entry fee for all quizzers is €2 which, of course, will go to the Equinac Organisation fund.
Important information: If you see any creatures who seem stranded or struggling in the sea, near the sea itself or even around the coast, lying in the sand, or on rocks, wherever, then please telephone 112 for assistance.
