On February 2nd, the kick-off meeting for the “LIFE Godwit Flyway” project took place at Companhia das Lezírias. This project aims to protect the black-tailed godwit (Limosa limosa), a migratory bird closely linked to the quality of our wetlands.
The main objective of this LIFE project is to create a “safe harbor” for the European population of black-tailed godwits along their East Atlantic migratory route. José Alves, a researcher at CESAM and the project coordinator at UA, shared insights about this project and its significance for the conservation of the black-tailed godwit.
