ATN na TV


No passado domingo, dia 18 de Agosto, o programa em directo da RTP - Verão Total, veio fazer um edição especial em Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo.

João Quadrado, o sorridente biólogo e autóctone da região, apresentou a Associação Transumância e Natureza e a Reserva da Faia.

Falou um pouquinho de tudo: os nossos objectivos, a nossa visão de conservação, o nosso parceiro Rewilding Europe, a fauna e flora da região, e a visitação à Reserva da Faia Brava.

Podem ver tudo aqui, na parte 4, sensivelmente após a metade dessa parte.

---------------------------------

Last sunday, the 18th of August, ATN were at the portuguese national television - RTP, in a special edition of the show "Verão Total". The emission was made life, from Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo.

João Quadrado, our ever-smiling biologist and endogenous from this region, introduced ATN and Faia Brava Reserve.

João introduced ATN's work for conservation and our main objectives; talked about the creation of Faia Brava Reserve and the fact that this is the first private protected area.

When questioned about ATN's conservation strategy, João explained that ATN is, over the last couple of years, changing its strategy, turning into a less active approach, letting natural processes occur by themselves. Then we refered that the opportunity comes from the abandonment of agricultural lands, which allows nature to return at this territory. He also introduced Rewilding Europe, explaining that is an European level initiative, and that ATN is the portuguese partner from Western Iberia,  among 5 core areas that exist.
He also spoke about which type of fauna and flora can be found at Faia Brava and the visiting programs that ATN provides.

You can watch the program on this link. it is on "Parte 4", approximately after the first half of it.
