In addition, the shopping mall will also be opening a brand new Leroy Merlin store, scheduled to open its doors on Tuesday 24th October. It will have a commercial area of more than 3,200m2, stocking DIY products, construction materials, decoration for the home and garden, and furniture.
THREE BABY LIONS BORN AT TERRA NATURA ZOO
Terra Natura Murcia has presented three new African lions, two males and one female, which were born in the park in September. The babies have been named Makhulu, Silbán and Irati and are in good health, as certified by the park's veterinary service after giving birth. To celebrate the arrival of the lions, the park will hold talks about the birth and have children's activities focused on these animals every weekend in October. With these new additions, Terra Natura Murcia now has seven members of this endangered species which stand out for its size, powerful jaw and light beige colour. During the last two decades, the population of the African lion in the wild has decreased considerably, making the initiatives of parks such as Terra Natura Murcia essential for their breeding and conservation in captivity.
NEW ROUTE FOR CORVERA AIRPORT
The Region of Murcia International Airport will expand its flights next summer with a new route that will connect the community with Porto. The leader of the Executive has highlighted the importance of infrastructure as "having good connections" so that tourists "find it easy to get to the Region." In relation to this, he highlighted that the Corvera airport "is advancing" and that the lines already announced with Madrid and Barcelona, which join the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Morocco and other points in Spain, in the summer of 2024, a new one will be added that will link Murcia with the Portuguese city of Porto.
