Do you know about the Audouin's gull?
Audouin's gull lives in the Mediterranean coast, with great presence in Torrevieja salt mines.
In the sixties Spain had just a few hundred couples, however from the eighties experienced a significant increase in their numbers, to the point of considering the Spanish population of the Audouin's gull as the most important worldwide today.
90% of its population nests on our Mediterranean coasts
The colony was established in 2004 and reached almost 3,800 breeding pairs in 2010, making it one of the most important in the world.
