Some impressions from our environmental education and awareness activities from this season

Our crew for a beach clean-up at Estoril beach in Sal Rei

 We also did a clean-up activity in the "barracas" - a shanti-town area just outside Sal Rei

More cleaning :) Here in the Ribeira de Rabil

This happy bunch is a group of kids living in the communities in the North of the island. They spent a day with our Crew in Fundo das Figueiras for our "School in Nature" program

The ladies from our crochet handicraft workshop. The carrier bags they are making are sold to tourists as souvenirs - the benefit goes back to the producers


  1. Its great to see such work being done

    from the look of it your beach clean was successful

  2. Thanks for your comment! Beach cleaning is so important in Boa Vista, there is SO much plastic and trash on the beaches, and it is bad for both turtles and tourism, so we are doing our best to raise awareness of the issue and to change the practice of throwing garbage into the water or on the beaches.
