To celebrate this the Lagos City Council and the ‘Associação Aldeia’, under the guidance of ICNF (Instituto de Conservação da Natureza e Florestas) and in conjunction with the team of SEPNA (Serviço de Proteção da Natureza da GNR) are going to continue to work closely with RIAS providing them with the financial support they need to recover injured or sick wild animals, as well as to help with their environmental research and education - with the aim of preserving wild fauna and biodiversity in the Algarve.

Lagos will contribute an annual budget of €2,500 to the project. The protocol is valid for one year, with the possibility of automatic renewal for equal and successive periods of time.
