Today is World Earth Day, which was initially created to raise public awareness of the environment, inspiring people to save and protect it. This year’s theme on World Earth Day is “Restoring our Earth”, which aims to highlight the tools and new technologies that contribute to the restoration of terrestrial ecosystems.

This is also a mission of the LIFE projects, which are useful tools in the restoration of terrestrial ecosystems. The LIFE IP AZORES NATURA, also takes upon this mission, and, in the Azores, will promote a set of conservation actions, namely in the active protection of 13 habitats, and in the improvement of the conservation status of 24 species protected under the Birds and Habitats Directives, which are in an unfavorable state of conservation, in a total of more than 1200 ha of area to intervene.
