MISSION

Our mission is to nurture and encourage a long lasting, conscious and valuable relationship between people and nature.

Through this meaningful bond, we aim to promote a personal and collective well-being and also to support appreciation and conservation of the natural world and its protected areas.

VISion

We aspire to be an important agent in the "portuguese green revolution", inspiring people to connect more and more with nature.

We also look forward to be recognized as a reliable and central figure in the sustainability scene in Portugal.

VALues

Consciousness - feeling, observing and interpreting everything around us is the way to become integrated in the whole.
Authenticity - being truthful, pure and open is a quality we preserve and consider to be essential.
Dynamism - we believe that in these times we must not only observe the world but we must be the change that we wish to see in it.


 

OUR PRATICES

Ecotherapy

Studies show that the exposure to natural environments tends to improve our mental well-being. Anxiety and depression have became a global epidemic and this approach emerges as a valuable tool for the interaction with the natural areas, which have so much potential to favor our mental clarity.

 

Mindfulness

It is the ability to bring one’s own attention and focus onto the experiences of the present moment, through certain practices and techniques, as meditation, for example. In an ever more fast paced world, it should be an essential and vital part of our lives, promoting overall a greater well-being and perceived health.

Ecotourism

It is described as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education". It’s a sustainable way of traveling that benefits all involved parts – tourists, local communities and nature.

 

Educational

Because in order to care about something we first have to know and understand it, we always promote the interpretation of the places we visit. Through an ecological approach our team biologists provide information about the fauna and flora while raising awareness for conservation and issues.
