Project “Birds and Nature Conservation” European Vountary Service
This year we started our second project as a part of Erasmus+ programme, European Voluntary Service (Key activity 1: Youth mobility) by the name “Nature and birds conservation”. Volunteer Florbela Torres from Portugal joined us for a period of one year and she will participate in different activities that we conduct. Our partner organization in this project is Associação Social Recreativa Juventude de Vila Fonche/Juventude.
Project is funded by European Union.
And this is how Florbela introduced her self to BIOM members:
“My name is Florbela Torres, I’m a Portuguese biologist post-graduated in Ecology, 24 years old, especially interested in Wild Animals Conservation and Environment. After some diverse small experiences in Conservation, during which I had the opportunity of deal with different species and environmental issues – Ethology of Common Dolphin in Portugal, Lesser Kestrel Breeding and Exotic Animals Rescue (mainly primates) in Spain, Marine Turtles Conservation with the unfortunate poaching situation, in Cabo Verde, and finally the actual most endangered feline in the world, the Iberian Lynx, once again in Portugal – I’m nowadays in Croatia.Currently in Zagreb, doing my EVS with BIOM – organization focus on Birds Conservation. EVS means a new experience abroad, cultural exchange, and opportunity of learning or improving skills, challenges! For no particular reason I chose Croatia, but going in (the stunning) Plitvice National Park made the trip already worth it!”
