World Environment Day is one of the main vehicles for disseminating and raising awareness of the planet’s environmental problems. It also allows us to understand that we are not alone in the world and that our actions reflect consequences for the environment. This year’s central theme is the restoration of habitats, and the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) will also be launched by the United Nations (UN). That is, in the next 10 years, the UN will support countries, partners and people who intend to focus on the preservation of ecosystems and the fight against their degradation. LIFE IP AZORES NATURA also integrates this lot of partners that will make efforts to restore ecosystems in the Azores. Through a set of actions, this project will ensure a significant improvement in the conservation status of species and habitats that are protected by the Birds and Habitats Directives.
