Nature Park

Marine Conservation & Social Work

€245 per person

Our project aims to improve the littering in the shoreline (beach, dunes and fishing harbour), protecting marine animals, as well as swimmers and beachgoers.  

If you are like “work hard, play hard”, you will be interested in gathering a bunch of friends and join us in this epic program!

Join a Faro beach one of paradisiac barrier islands of ria Formosa. Ria formosa has been suffering the pressure of human presence. If not controlled, trash produced by habitants and visitors may become a serious problem affecting the health of the local community and the wildlife in the earth of this incredible nature reserve.

You will be joining clean-up actions, awareness campaigns targeted towards visitors and inhabitants and assist the local community doing social work.

Remember all waterways lead to the ocean!
