What are we intending to do

The following project interventions will take place in the priority habitat within the intervention area (Natura 2000 code 1150*, coastal lagoons), with the aim of improving its conservation status:
– Opening of channels in the stonewalls that exist inside the lagoon in order to increase water circulation;
– Removal of invasive species, such as Arundo donax, Hedychium gardnerianum, Pittosporum undulatum, and Cyrtomium falcatum;
– Planting of native species that occur naturally in this area: Scabiosa nitens, Rumex azoricus, Myosotis maritima and Morella faya;
– Control of excessive expansion of Juncus acutus and direct sowing of Solidago azorica in the areas of reed removal.
