I am a conservation biologist witha keen interest in environmental education and how media can be used as a means to raise awareness for biodiversity conservation. These interests have led me to publish photos and articles in the popular press in both national and international publications and to my current involvement in several environmental education projects, the most high profile being the Eco-schools and the Young Reporters for the Environment, implemented in Portugal through the Associação Bandeira Azul da Europa and the project “Let’s take care of the plant” promoted by UNESCO. I am also an active member of several Portuguese non-governmental organization for the environment, namely the Portuguese League for the Protection of Nature, the Portuguese Herpetological Society and the Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds and ALDEIA a non-governmental organization whose purpose is to contribute to the sustainable development based on nature conservation and the culture and traditions of the rural world.
