Lets preserve a native forest, rich in biodiversity, for the community and for the future.
After several months of work and exploration on the field by a fantastic team that gathered around this project, 'MilVoz - Nature Protection and Conservation Association' is now advancing with one of its main objectives, the creation of a network of small Natural Reserves. These spaces will aim at the conservation of nature, biodiversity, Portuguese autochthonous forest and landscape identity. They will be spaces where the association will develop environmental education, involving the population, transmitting knowledge and teaching people how to manage a land in favor of biodiversity and native forest, reducing the risk of forest fires and protection of water and soil.
The value defined for this campaign allows us to acquire the central part of a very special hillside, of great ecological value and enormous biodiversity, located 15km from Coimbra, and that we want to preserve for the future.
All the value that is achieved beyond the defined objective (3000 €) will be channeled for the immediate expansion of the area to be preserved, in particular along the existing brook, where we already have contacts with owners. With this income, it will also be possible to recover highly degraded lands in the surroundings, namely areas of eucalyptus, acacia patches, and other invasives that threaten the preservation of this space in the medium term.
As an association formed only by ordinary citizens, the implementation of this project depends on the small contribution of each person who identifies with what we want to protect and develop. Join this cause, for a livelier, more diverse and more fire-resistant forest. Your help is essential!
