Lagoon debated

Lagoa dos Salgados between Albufeira and Armação de Pêra was the theme of a recent seminar that highlighted the need to protect its wildlife.

The event, held on April 9 and 10 in Algoz, was organised by environmental association Almargem and counted on the presence of representatives of regional water authority ARH, the Society for the Study of Birds SPEA and Albufeira Câmara.

The seminar, entitled Diversity of Wetlands: The Case of the Salgados Lagoon, also debated strategies to protect wetlands and the diverse species living in them, referring to the case of Lagoa dos Salgados that “needs a protected zone status”.
