On September 19th, the Tejo Estuary Biodiversity Forum took place in Alcochete as part of the celebrations for the 47th anniversary of the Tejo Estuary Nature Reserve (RNET). This event, which had CESAM as a partner, aimed to establish and strengthen partnerships with a view to realizing shared visions for the Tejo Estuary, focusing on the preservation of its natural resources and values.
The Forum featured the presence of researchers José Alves (CESAM/DBIO), José Pedro Granadeiro (CESAM/FCUL), and Teresa Catry (CESAM/FCUL), who discussed the topic of Avifauna in the Tejo Estuary. Among the topics discussed by our researchers, the international importance of the Tejo Estuary, the conservation of wader birds in this region, and the need to reconcile agriculture with biodiversity conservation were highlighted.
The gathering brought together, in one place, researchers and other key stakeholders in the process of conserving the biodiversity of the Tejo Estuary, representing another step toward the long-term preservation of this area.
