"One Forest, one future" in Maia with many visitors

The Museu do Tabaco da Maia, in São Miguel, received from April 16th until the 20th the exhibition "One Forest, one future", developed within the Sustainable Laurel Life Project.

The intention of this exhibition is that everyone can get to know better the plants that belong to the azorian Laurel Forest and learn a little bit more about the Azorian Bullfinch. Besides, it is also possible to understand the preservation work that has been done by the Sustainable Laurel Life Project on the Laurel Forest and the Peatbogs in Planalto dos Graminhais, in SPA Pico da Vara/Ribeira do Guilherme and the SIC Serra da Tronqueira/Planalto dos Graminhais.

“One Forest, one future” was exhibited in the Museu do Tabaco da Maia for 9 days and was visited by over 250 people, among students from the Council Schools and tourist excursions that stopped by specifically to see this exhibition.

On April 20th, Spea’s Technician Azucena de la Cruz was in Maia to explain to everyone that was visiting the exhibition the work developed by the Sustainable Laurel Life Project on the SPA Pico da Vara/Ribeira do Guilherme and they had the opportunity to watch the video made during the Life Priolo Project: “The last Azores Bulfinches”, which helps demonstrating the Laurel Forest importance to the survival of this São Miguel’s endemic bird.

This was another successful initiative that had the support of Museu do Tabaco da Maia that organized all the exhibition visits.
