the Perseids left long lines and pollution in the Teide National Park

The Telesforo Bravo Juan Coello Foundation, dedicated to the scientific dissemination and conservation of the environment, has criticized through its social networks the large number of people and vehicles that have gone up to the Teide National Park during the night of this Tuesday and Wednesday to enjoy the Perseid meteor shower, an astronomy show that, as every year, becomes a claim for locals and visitors. “The call from the Cabildo de Tenerife was useless for people not to go up to see them or the recommendation of alternative places of observation. It is a lost battle,” they published on the network of networks.

“With 10,000 people going up, the collapse is already organized,” they continued in their writing, before the images that were broadcast with the queues to access Las Cañadas, a privileged scene to see The Perseids. “Half measures do not work, either access to the Park is prohibited which would have to be legally justified and now there are reasons or we must resign ourselves to assuming damage to vegetation and fauna, especially invertebrate by trampling people and vehicle wheels and waste abandonment “.

“This island is full, there is no room for anyone else and the sooner the public administrations assume it and begin to take measures for the future, the better it will be for us,” they conclude.

The security device established in the Teide National Park during the night from Wednesday to Thursday on the occasion of the Perseids sighting resulted in 44 fines for various infractions, as reported by the Civil Guard Command in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
