The protected areas of Loulé, Rocha da Pena and Fonte Benémola, to mark the tenth anniversary of their status, launched a campaign to raise awareness among visitors about being more careful and valuing the nature within the areas.

To celebrate the birthday of these two areas being declared local Protected Landscapes, a symbolic action of environmental volunteering in Fonte Benémola to remove residues along the pedestrian paths of this Protected Landscape, in leisure parks and car parks, took place.
This area that is known in the Algarve for its vast diversity of flora and fauna and, in the case of Rocha da Pena, an area with a lot of geological value, there is an almost constant influx of tourists and visitors all year round.

According to the councilman of Loulé Town Hall, Carlos Carmo, these areas are well preserved and have supervision at all times, such as a system that allows the Town Hall to know on average how many people enter and the time they spend there.
However, it is always good to remember and raise awareness among the people who visit us. That is why “during the year, many activities are promoted with a view to protecting these areas, before the pandemic we also invited students from our schools to participate in these initiatives”, said the councilor to The Portugal News.
