Sensitization in Schools - Protecting Cape Verde Sea Birds

Throughout 2018, Biosphere1 will visit all primary and secondary schools on the island of São Vicente, thirty-seven in total, to present the Cape Verde seabirds in an awareness raising process for their recognition and preservation.

The children will have the opportunity to know the history of Cagarra-of- Cape Verde and learn about their adventures in the form of a mascot created by Biosphere, Cagarra Edu, which will present all the other species and show the differences between them as well as the threats they face throughout their lives.

This project has as partners the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment, the Ministry of Education of Cape Verde, MAVA, BirdLife International and SPEA - Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds.
