CERES Project Aljezur, Algarve, Southwest Portugal


Field Study Centre, Southwest Algarve

We established the CERES International Project as a conservation organisation committed to field-based education, environmental research and low impact outdoor recreation. CERES is located near Aljezur in the middle of the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina where we have created a terrestrial reserve on our own 60 hectares of land in order to facilitate multidisciplinary research and conservation projects.

" I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand "
