A Rocha Portugal

A Rocha’s first field study centre, Cruzinha,  opened in 1986 close to Ria de Alvor. Since then, the team has been researching the wildlife and habitats of southern Portugal in order to aid their protection. Single species studies have included Kentish Plover Charadrius alexandrinus and Little Tern Sterna albifrons on the Alvor dunes, with local school children involved in roping off the nesting areas and designing information boards. Botanical monitoring and the collection of plant specimens around the Ria de Alvor provided crucial scientific evidence of habitat destruction which helped us win a legal action, in 2012, aimed at protecting this outstanding estuary from inappropriate development.
