Environmentalists say that two illegal advertising billboards have appeared in the San Fulgencio area and have launched a complaint with the Seprona branch of the Guardia Civil, who deal with environmental and wildlife issues.

The Friends of the Southern Alicante Wetlands (La Asociación de Amigos de los Humedales del Sur de Alicante) say that the billboards have appeared by the Hondo de Amorós, which is a protected area.

The group say that made representations to the Ministry of Environment at the start of last year but no further action had been taken.
