The LIFE BEETLES project visited the LIFE SNAILS project, a nature conservation project dedicated to the conservation of three species of endemic land snails, on the island of Santa Maria, in which the Regional Secretariat for the Environment and Climate Action is the coordinating beneficiary.

During this visit, it was possible to explore the intervention areas and monitor the nature conservation work carried out to date. There was also place for sharing and exchanging experiences, regarding the monitoring work of the project’s target species, with an opportunity for discussion about the field methodologies and protocols to be followed.

This visit is part of action E.2. Networking, Technical Dissemination and Transfer/Replication, making it possible to interact with other work teams, not only from the LIFE SNAILS project, but also with other professionals in the area of malacology from the IFCN – IP Madeira, the Regional Directorate for the Environment and Climate Action, as well as the Santa Maria Environment and Climate Changes Service and Expolab – Centro Ciência Viva.
