The Children's Forest

The master's students of Gorongosa National Park will celebrate Ecology Day by planting trees at a primary school with children on Mt. Gorongosa and educating them about the importance of conserving their native forest through games and an interactive lesson.  The activity is called 'The Children's Forest' or 'Floresta das Crianças' because the children will take ownership of the reforestation project at their school and care for it over time.

VIDEO -WHITE CROWBERRY - ‘CAMARINHA’- (COREMA ALBUM (L.) D. DON)’- A PLANT WITH SMALL FRUITS OF GREAT POTENTIAL
The coastal green bushes we call white crowberry ('camarinhas' in Portuguese) - with the scientific name of ‘Corema album (L.) D. Don’, subspecies album - are an Iberian endemism. Their white fruits, also known as ‘camarinhas’ may occupy a new niche market. This video describes this species and the research that has been developed at INIAV. (© INIAV & EPVR, 2015).

Documentário “Ao ritmo das marés”

12-09-2021 - 15-09-2021 11:50 pm
Documentário  “Ao ritmo das marés”

“Ao ritmo das marés” é um documentário que foca as diferentes formas de vida que ocorrem nos ecossistemas costeiros, especificamente na zona afetada pelo ciclo das marés. Para tal, os fundos aquáticos da região Oeste foram filmados, nomeadamente os da Reserva Natural das Berlengas, classificada como Reserva Mundial da Biosfera pela UNESCO. Descreveram-se as costas rochosas temperadas, concretamente o que pode ser observado nos seus andares supralitoral, médiolitoral (com as zonas das algas verdes, cracas, mexilhões e algas vermelhas) e infralitoral. Procurou-se identificar as principais características destas zonas e mostrar alguns dos organismos que nelas habitam, inclusive a forma como vivem, se alimentam e reproduzem. Pretendeu-se também apontar as principais ameaças e problemas que os afetam, bem como os bens e serviços que estes ecossistemas providenciam às comunidades locais, alertando para a proteção e conservação dos mesmos. A informação divulgada no documentário “Ao ritmo das marés” procura consciencializar para o património natural das zonas costeiras, com o propósito da sua valorização e proteção.

Do we have bright lights at our coastal dunes? Project Emc2 about white crowberry ‘Camarinha’- Corema album (L.) D. Don: from environmental education initiatives to conservation actions about this endemic plant with small fruits of great potential

White crowberry - Corema album (L.) D. Don - is a plant belonging to the Ericaceae family, which is described in the Iberian Flora. The genus Corema (L.) has only two species, C. conradii (Torr.) Torr. ex Loud., which is endemic to the Northwest coast of the United States of America; and C. album (L.) D. Don, which is endemic to the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula. In the Azores, there is the subspecies C. album (L.) D. Don: - C. album subsp. azoricum Pinto da Silva. In order to promote awareness raising about this shrub and its small fruits, with unique characteristics, concerning both their taste - slightly acidic, and their color – white; the educational project Emc2 was implemented since 2016, being currently financed by the Strategic Plan MARE- FCT UID/MAR/04292/2020. In this project, in addition to initiatives to awareness raising about this species, some hands on activities are also being developed for the recovery of populations that are in decline, which are described in this Lecture
