Bird ringing


The banding technique was introduced by HC Mortensen, in 1889, in Denmark. Initially, it was used to study the movements of starlings Sturnus spp, but since then it has provided remarkable advances in the scientific knowledge of bird migrations.

Scientific ringing is an investigation method based on individual marking of birds, generally with a small metal ring engraved with a unique combination of characters. Any record of the recovery of a ringed bird, obtained through its recapture and subsequent release, or when the bird is found already dead, can provide a lot of useful information about the life of that bird and, in particular, about its movements.

Water Quality Monitoring


Water monitoring, in the atmospheric branch, in the continental branch (surface and underground), in aspects of quantity and quality, as well as hydromorphology and aquatic ecosystems, constitutes the first element of measurement of the control of the state of water systems , the effectiveness of planning measures and the efficiency of management measures. It is also constituted, by the direct availability of the information collected to the citizen and other entities, as an important contribution to the participatory management and citizenship.

Water quality in the aquatic environment can be affected by many factors. Equilibrium conditions frequently suffer fluctuations, mainly due to external pressures, which justifies the need to implement a monitoring program sensitive to these changes, allowing later action on them.

Nature Surveillance


They ensure, throughout the entire area of the biosphere reserve, surveillance, inspection and monitoring functions relating to the environment and natural resources, namely within the scope of the water domain, natural heritage and nature conservation._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b- 136bad5cf58d_Surveillance activities 

Biodiversity in Agricultural Activity

Biodiversity loss is one of the greatest threats facing humanity, as the need to increase production requires agricultural intensification, which is usually associated with loss of biodiversity. A greater loss of biodiversity implies a loss of productivity, hence greater pressure on rainforest areas to overcome the lack of productivity.

Farmers are thus challenged through their intelligence and attitudes to break this serious problem.

In this sense, activities are carried out within some farms, in terms of good agricultural practices for biodiversity, as well as a set of awareness actions for other farmers in order to show them that intensive agriculture is not incompatible with the conservation of the biodiversity.

It will be with the perpetuation of environmental balances on farms that we will be able to ensure the productive potential of soils in the future.
