As part of the international event “Trees for the World”, LIFE IP AZORES NATURA promoted the planting of about 400 individuals of endemic species and the placement of 400 individual protection tubes in Lagoa do Negro, the project’s area of intervention on the island of Terceira.
In this voluntary action, were used endemic species produced in the Faial Botanical Garden, among them: 𝘗𝘳𝘶𝘯𝘶𝘴 𝘢𝘻𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢, and produced in forest nurseries on Terceira, such as the 𝘐𝘭𝘦𝘹 𝘢𝘻𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢.
In the intervention area where the activity took place, a large amount of exotic and invasive species has recently been removed, mainly 𝘙𝘶𝘣𝘶𝘴 𝘶𝘭𝘮𝘪𝘧𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘶𝘴, but also 𝘏𝘦𝘥𝘺𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘨𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘶𝘮, 𝘊𝘺𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘢 𝘤𝘰𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘪 and 𝘊𝘳𝘺𝘱𝘵𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘢 𝘫𝘢𝘱𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘢.
This activity of the Regional Secretariat for the Environment and Climate Change, within the LIFE IP AZORES NATURA project, was carried out in partnership with the Regional Council of the National Scout Corps (CNE – Corpos Nacional de Escuteiros) and attended by 90 participants, including Scouts and their families.
With the financial support of the LIFE Programme of the European Union.
