Sagres - a must see destination for birdwatchers
Sagres is a very special region. Not only is the landscape that surrounds it spectacular, but its biological heritage is unique in Europe. Here we can find a huge diversity of habitats: woodlands and farmland, estuaries and sand dunes and the sea itself, between them supporting hundreds of species of fauna and flora. Of particular interest are the variety of native flora, the many cetaceans and terrestrial mammals and, of course, the many birds. It is the birds that are the main attraction of this festival and therefore the programme of activities focuses mostly around them. The event aims to attract participants with differing tastes, expectations and knowledge, making it ideal for families, students, nature lovers and birdwatchers of all levels of experience.
During the festival we will have numerous initiatives, such as field trips, boating, bird monitoring activities with specialists, thematic lectures, courses, workshops, games, gatherings, environmental education, among many others.
Local companies, including accommodation, catering and touristic activities, have joined together to welcoming participants by offering special rates and other benefits.
For all this, be sure to visit Sagres during this festival! Join this celebration of nature!
