ATNatureza appeals to all the conservationists for support in the 2018 Faia Brava Fire Prevention Campaign in order to protect the District's largest cork oak and holm oak stands from of another dangerous summer.

The Associação Transumância e Natureza - ATNatureza, in defense of the Natural heritage in this heatwave that threatens our forest, launched (in June) the campaign "Prevention of Fire Faia Brava 2018", in order to prevent the occurrence of ignitions in the Faia Brava Reserve and surrounding territory.

Since then, the association has been making every effort, however, due to the scarcity of resources that are increasingly being felt, ATNatureza launches an appeal for the support of the 2018 Faia Brava Fire Prevention Campaign for the acquisition of resources which at this point we can not bear and need to renew.

The Faia Brava Reserve - which, thanks to the continued efforts of ATNatureza, has not suffered a fire since 2003 - is the first and only private protected area in Portugal and is part of the Forest Intervention Zone (ZIF) of Algodres / Vale de Afonsinho, the Côa Valley Special Protection Zone (Natura 2000), the BirdLife International Important Bird Area (IBA) and the Côa Valley Archaeological Park, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

This territory, together with all other surrounding properties, constitute the largest cork oak and holm oak stands of Guarda's district, reason why its protection becomes indispensable for the conservation of the natural patrimony and the autochthonous forest.

In addition to the acquisition of materials necessary for the prevention and first intervention in fires, this campaign aims to support the food and survival of the large herbivores (Garranos Horses and Maronesas Cows) present in the Faia Brava Reserve which due to the heat, need an accompaniment and replenishment of extra water and food.

This, in addition to the prevention actions, is also complemented by a Volunteering Campaign for Fire Surveillance, which also counts on the participation of the various elements of the team.

In this sense, ATNatureza appeals to all conservationist spirits to support this cause for the survival and conservation of our Nature.

Help us in this cause so as to avoid another catastrophic year.

Do not ignore this cause, contribute and help us to prevent and save what belongs to everyone. Nature is in our hands.

About the author

Created in 2000, the Associação Transumância e Natureza (ATNatureza) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo, whose mission is to Create Spaces for Nature (EPN's).

Initially dedicated to the protection of the species of birds of prey that nest in Arribas do Côa (such as the egyptian vulture and Bonelli's eagle), ATNatureza emerges with a regional scope in the protection of the region's natural heritage through restoration and development ecological.

Like the Faia Brava Reserve, the strategy expands at a regional level through the EPN's Ribeira do Mosteiro, Arribas da Mata, "Middle Côa" and Arribas de Ovens, among others, whose natural values ​​are important to preserve and for which ATNatureza blame

In these areas managed by ATNatureza are implemented the various conservation actions of the projects in which the Association is partner, such as LIFE "Rupis" and LIFE "Club de Fincas por la Conservación del Oeste Ibérico" and the initiative Rewilding Europe.

Currently ATNatureza has 10 team members specialized in the most varied work areas.

    Agradecimento

    (English Version Below)
    Caro Apoiante,

    A Campanha "Prevenir para Conservar" terminou sem que fosse atingido o montante esperado. No entanto, graças aos vossos contributos, ainda conseguimos angariar (apróx.) 400€. Não é, de perto o esperado, mas será muito útil, pois no momento que vivemos, todo o apoio é mais que bem-vindo.

    A ATNatureza quer expressar o seu profundo agradecimento pelo seu apoio, disponibilidade e colaboração em suportar esta causa. É com o coração cheio que a ATNatureza ainda revê a sua missão em todos os apoiantes que vão acreditando nela.

    Aos apoiantes que não deram apoio incondicional, ser-lhe-á devolvido o apoio. Pelo que e, caso estejam ainda dispostos a apoiar, podem sempre transferir esse apoio directamente para a ATNatureza. Não teríamos como agradecer.

    Mais uma vez, agradecemos todos os que nos apoiaram e ajudaram a suportar esta campanha. Sem o vosso esforço não conseguiríamos nada.

    Esperamos poder retribuir tal contributo e tê-los aqui, presencialmente, em uma visita pela Reserva da Faia Brava, de forma a agradecer devidamente.

    Em nome de toda a biodiversidade da Reserva da Faia Brava, do património natural, de todos os técnicos que trabalham diariamente em prol da conservação da Natureza, o nosso maior e profundo agradecimento.

    Pela direção,
    O nosso maior agradecimento,

    (English Version)

    Dear Contributer,

    The "Prevent to Save" Campaign ended without reaching the expected amount. However, thanks to your contributions, we still managed to raise (approximately) € 400.

    It is not what was expected, but it will be very useful, because at the moment we live, all the support is more than welcome.

    ATNatureza would like to express its deep appreciation for your support, availability and collaboration in supporting this cause. It is with a heart full that ATNatureza still reviews its mission in all the supporters who believe in it.

    Supporters who have not given unconditional support will be given back support. Therefore, if you are still willing to support, you can always transfer this support directly to ATNatureza. We could not thank you enough.

    Once again, we thank all those who supported us and helped support this campaign. Without your effort we would get nothing.

    We hope to be able to reciprocate this contribution and have you here, in person, on a visit to the Faia Brava Reserve, in order to thank them properly.

    In the name of all the biodiversity of the Faia Brava Reserve, of the natural heritage, of all the technicians who work daily for the conservation of nature, our deepest and sincerly thanks.

    By the direction,
    Our greatest thanks,
