"Temporary Ponds: a natural habitat to be protected!"

7th EPCN + LIFE Charcos

> Field Trip


Field trip to Vila do Bispo

One  of  the  main  goals  of  the  LIFE  Charcos  Project  is  the  conservation  and restoration  of  Mediterranean  Temporary  Ponds  in  its  intervention area, which overlaps the Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentina Coast (PNSACV in Portuguese), in the southwestern region of Portugal.

In Vila do Bispo county and Sagres region, we can find some well-preserved temporary ponds,  and  also  some  of those that were submitted to restoration by the Project. Our visit to this region aims to show some of the project interventions.

During the visit we observed characteristic flora and fauna from these fragile freshwater systems, and also experience some of the most beautiful landscape in Portugal. We had walking trips and time for picnic.
